May 1, 2020 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Skills Ontario is hosting its Women in Skilled Trades and Technologies Conference online on May 5.
The in-person 2020 Skills Ontario Young Women’s Conference, originally scheduled to be held in conjunction with the 2020 Skills Ontario Competition, was cancelled due to COVID-19.
The conference will include speakers and panelists representing organizations such as the Government of Ontario, RBC, 3M Canada, OPG, KickAss Careers, Women of Powerline Technicians, UA Canada, and Women in Renewable Energy.
Partners include Hydro One, Magna, Cambrian College, Workplace Safety & Prevention Services and CBRE.
“Through our #SkillsAtHome initiatives, we are thrilled to provide virtual resources to our audiences to learn about careers in the skilled trades and technologies, and this conference is one of the many ways we are proud to do that,” says Ian Howcroft, CEO of Skills Ontario.
The conference will start at 10:30 am and will be held on WebEx, and while registration is not mandatory, it is recommended.
Skills Ontario is also hosting Virtual Skills Ontario Competition Days, or #VirtualSOCDays, on social media.
