In the Fall of 2019, the FSC is constituting its inaugural Advisory Board and is inviting applications/nominations from a diverse range of outstanding Canadian business, academic, and community leaders for multiple Advisory Board appointments, including FSC’s Advisory Board Chair.
The Board’s mandate is to provide strategic guidance and foresight to the FSC, ensuring a relevant research agenda and reviewing progress against key metrics. The Advisory Board’s immediate priorities are establishing its governance framework and providing input to and approval of FSC’s mission, vision, values and strategic plan.
FSC Advisory Board members will come from a variety of sectors
including private sector (retail, technology and innovation, and
financial and professional services, among others), academia,
government, and non-profit. Each Advisory Board member will be
passionate about Canada’s future prosperity, with a genuine affinity for
and commitment to ensuring Canada’s workforce is future-ready and able
to effectively compete globally.
Forward-thinking community and business leaders with employment and
training services and workforce development experience as well as
leaders with a wide range of experience, which may include digital
technology/automation, artificial intelligence, big data and analytics,
human resources, economics, demographics, research, academia, or policy
development are highly relevant for the Board. Board governance
education and/or credentials such as ICD.D or C.Dir. as well as Chair,
Vice Chair and Committee experience are assets. All members of the
Advisory Board will represent a mix of skills, knowledge, thought and
sector leadership, and diversity in all its forms across Canada.
This is an exciting opportunity for a diverse group of outstanding
leaders to join the launch of the FSC as it unfolds its bright ambition
to transform the skills development mandate of business and government,
across the country and globally, for many years to come.
