We are working with a diverse team of more than 100 world class diverse multidisciplinary researchers from academic institutions, think tanks, and community organizations bringing together a pool of expertise in economics, information technology, predictive analytics, education, management, sociology, gender and diversity studies, and multiple methods and new technologies.
Our research informs discussion on the following questions:
- What do key stakeholders understand about the skills and competencies that will best prepare Canadians to work in a rapidly changing economy?
- What practices are needed to serve the skills development needs of diverse and vulnerable populations?
- What do employers need to be able to meet their current and future skilled workforce needs?
- What are new and innovative approaches to preparing for the future skills needs and demands that work?
- What broader workplace issues are impacting the ability of Canadian workers to navigate their careers and future prospects?
