Shock-Proofing the Future of Work: Skills Innovation Challenge – Webinar – June 24

Listen in as we answer your questions and discuss the application process and guidelines for our open call for proposals, Shock-Proofing the Future of Work: Skills Innovation Challenge.

Our Shock-Proofing Call is a $15-million initiative aimed at building resilience in the face of social and economic shock through innovative changes to the labour market. As we continue to fight the impacts of COVID-19 and other workplace disruptions, we recognize the need to support those most affected.

As the next step in our pandemic response plan, we are seeking proposals for activities such as research, network development and innovation pilots that target sectors, regions, and populations facing pressing needs and recognize emerging opportunities that examine new insights and models.

Submit an application by September 1, 2020!

*Please note two updates to the content of the webinar: (1) funding decisions are now expected within eight weeks of submission date (instead of four weeks stated during the webinar) and (2) we are not providing a theory of change template for this call.
