Over the last many years study after study has demonstrated that building diverse teams contributes unique insights, improves problem-solving, and enhances employee engagement. As Canada invests in rebuilding the labour market with job readiness, skill-development, and re-training, and as industries rebuild and shift, the importance of making sure that there is equal opportunity to participate in the “future world of work” is a responsibility we all share. There is already mounting information proving that we have work to do to reduce employment and training barriers faced by marginalized groups, youth, front-line workers, among others that have been further exacerbated by COVID-19. Taking a holistic approach to understanding and supporting potential employees’ and employees’ needs on all organization levels, is critical to building a “future of work for all”.

tech{LAB} Underwater Eye Spy with SuperNOVA

Take a deep dive under the surface of the ocean with a SuperNOVA instructor as we explore underwater habitats around Halifax, Nova Scotia through a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). Participants will follow along with animal and plant identification keys to identify species in our survey and add to our public database of marine sightings and species! An ROV or a remotely operated vehicle is an underwater submersible that is driven from the ocean’s surface rather than from within the vehicle itself. This means with ROVs, you don’t have to send humans deep in the ocean where there’s no oxygen, very little light and a lot of pressure. REGISTER
