An Equitable Rebound for People of Colour and Newcomers – Nova Scotia

August 16, 2022 @ 5:30 am - 7:30 pm ADT

Event Information

​COVID-19 has turned work life upside down. The past two years have not been kind, and work situations have changed for almost everyone. We all have our own work stories, including ups and downs, work-from-home struggles, and even the halting of businesses and loss of jobs. There are countless ways in which each of our work journeys may not have gone as expected.

​​Join ICTC on August 16th at 5:30 pm and connect with fellow Nova Scotia residents as we discuss overcoming work barriers and making a professional rebound.

​​This meetup is for Black Canadians, People of Colour, and Newcomers to share experiences over the last two years, discuss needs and challenges, and hear about career advancement and growth pathways.

​​*A $20 Amazon gift card will be provided as an honorarium to participants who actively engage in this event’s discussion.

​​Let’s kick off a more equitable rebound!

​​What to expect: An open session where participants can propose topics they are interested in and discuss them with other people in similar situations. We will also invite community partners (such as organizations serving Black Canadians, People of Colour, and Newcomers) who may have advice or resources for participants.

​​​Location: Volta – 1505 Barrington Street, Unit 100, Halifax, NS, B3J 3K5, Canada

​​Our thanks to attendees: The event is catered (dinner is on us!), and a raffle will take place for all participants. We also will maintain a list of anyone who is interested in hearing about how the research progresses and share any articles about the research with everyone. Identities will not be shared.

​​Who is involved? The Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC) is a non-profit, non-government organization. We do public interest research and we offer training and subsidy programs for people interested in careers in technology.

​​Community Partners: Thank you to Tribe Network, One North End, and Volta for helping make this meetup a success.

​If you are a university student, we offer co-op funding for tech-related placements.

​​If you are a newcomer to Canada, we offer pre- and post-arrival programs for starting or continuing a career in technology.
