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

VOLTA 100-1505 Barrington Street, Halifax

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 […]
