The Economics of Diversity & Inclusion: Creating Jobs for All Canadians

11:30am-1:30pm | Fairmont Royal York - 100 Front St W, Toronto

A diverse and inclusive economy is essential for economic growth. In the next decade, new technologies will completely transform the way we work and live – from advanced robotics and artificial intelligence, to autonomous transport, to next-generation biotechnology and genomics. In this changing landscape, it’s essential that we equip all Canadians – including women, indigenous people, newcomers and youth – with the necessary skills needed for the future.
