INDUSTRY DAY – Government Adoption of Cloud and Intelligent Automation: Driving Change Together!

Westin Ottawa 11 Colonal By Dr, Ottawa, Ontario

“Government Adoption of Cloud and Intelligent Automation: Driving Change Together!” Wednesday June 1, 2022 Scroll down to agenda… Though the economic case for government-wide adoption of Cloud was made more than a decade ago, progress in Canada remains uneven. In fact, despite considerable dialogue, adoption of Cloud remains at less than 10 per cent! TECHNATION put forward recommendations in 2015 and then again in 2019 calling on Government to accelerate Cloud adoption, prioritize in-house Cloud education and training, adopt a different operating model, and more. Unfortunately, Government remains hesitant to use leading-edge tech like Intelligent Automation to accelerate progress on delivering broader public policy objectives for Canada. That’s not to say that nothing was done; the Government of Canada did make some critical investments in digital government, which enabled it to respond quickly to citizens’ needs. But as we emerge from the pandemic, how do we ensure government continues – and accelerates – its modernization efforts to fully embrace Cloud and Intelligent Automation to deliver modern services while keeping Canadians’ information safe and secure? To help drive change, TECHNATION will bring key government leaders and industry together to address government cloud / IA / Ai adoption and its obstacles and […]

Accelerating Accessibility for Businesses

Online

The workforce underrepresentation of people with disabilities is well documented. At the same time, labour and skills shortages continue to be a challenge for employers in Nova Scotia, particularly as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic. For employers, adopting a mindset that forefronts equity, inclusion, and belonging in recruitment, retention, engagement, communication, training, and everyday workplace practices is key to building a bridge between a skilled and valuable labour pool and proven gaps in the labour market. This means moving beyond the built environment to include different ways of recruiting, communicating with, training, and engaging employees. Join Sea Change CoLab for a free virtual workshop to: Define disability, accessibility, inclusion, and belonging, and identify how these concepts apply in your workplace. Explore Nova Scotia’s Accessibility Act and its impact on workplaces. Identify barriers to accessibility through first voice case studies and scenarios. Integrate the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) as one framework for accessibility that removes barriers. Develop strategies for creating an accessible and inclusive workplace and culture. Come to this session and leave with a toolkit of resources to accelerate accessibility in your workplace!
