Future Skills Event – Innovation in Skill Development

Upskilling and reskilling for the future of work are top priorities for talent and business leaders across Financial Services (FS). However, skills shortages, as well as an apparent mis-match between “available” skills and “in-demand” skills extend beyond the FS sector. How are other industries tackling this challenge? What innovative skill development efforts are being piloted now? What we can learn and leverage for our sector?

Toronto Finance International (TFI), in partnership with PwC, is pleased to extend the conversation on future skills, upskilling, and reskilling, through this unique opportunity to learn about three innovative skill development solutions from other industries. Join us to learn more from:

Palette Inc - Sean Zohar, Recruitment, Marketing, & Communications Lead

Skills Mobility: Moving workers from declining industries to growth sectors – providing retail sales people with skills to thrive in technical sales roles

Rogers Cybersecure Catalyst - Charles Finlay, Executive Director

Skills Gap: Reskilling workers to fill a talent shortage – accelerated training to quickly grow the talent pool for cybersecurity roles.

JPMorgan Chase & Co - Owen Washburn, Vice President, Global Philanthropy
Clayton Pryor, Director of Workforce Development, Advocate Aurora Health
Betsy Rahill, Senior Consultant, Talent Strategy, UChicago Medicine

Skill Alignment: Reskilling workers to match people with jobs – solving talent shortages and sharing economic prosperity by reskilling under-employed workers for in-demand roles in healthcare.

Gain insights, ask questions, and share your own perspectives on how we can incorporate these innovative approaches and lessons learned into the financial services sector, to better prepare our organizations for the future of work.
