International speakers will present on global topics during different time zones from around the world. These four sessions will take place on every live conference day and will be outside of the Cannexus regular schedule between 9:00 am - 12:00 pm ET or 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm ET.
The need for Canada’s career development communities to be united and working towards the common goal of Career Development for Public Good has never been more critical. The Virtual Community Mosaic is a powerful collaborative process where participants actually produce a small work of art that creates ONE LARGE COMMUNITY MOSAIC, in real time. Participants will be delighted with the final image – to be unveiled post-Cannexus.
Hallway Meetings are generously brought to you by Douglas College. These video-based peer-to-peer matchmaking sessions take place during all breaks at Cannexus. To participate, you will be required to build your “Want to Meet” list in the platform by January 9, 2021. After this date, we will not be able to accommodate the peer-to-peer matchmaking functionality within your profile. If you complete your “Want to Meet” list by January 9, your meetings will be automatically scheduled in your personal agenda in the platform. After this date, we will not be able to accommodate the peer-to-peer matchmaking functionality within your profile. If you are unable to participate in Hallway Meetings, you will still be able to connect directly (by video or chat) with other attendees within the platform.
Pre-recorded on-demand sessions will be released in batches on each live conference day at designated times. While they are released during breaks of 15 or 30 minutes, the on-demand sessions themselves are 45 minutes in length and are intended to be viewed later at your convenience.
The Workforce Development Spotlight takes the form of one whole Block of six presentations on Wednesday, January 27 from 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm ET. It will explore how workforce strategies increase community capacity and improve employment opportunities through systemic change.
