Economic Developers Alberta (EDA) is pleased to offer its next Marketing Masters Webinar, titled "Preparing the Workforce for Tomorrow's Opportunities".
Many of today's occupations did not exist 20 years ago and over the next 20 years it is likely that a majority of these occupations will again be different.
Globalization, technology and innovation along with the need for networked production and service provision are all placing new demands on the workforce. As technology, culture and the economy rapidly change, new strategies and programs are being created to prepare these workers and industries to be competitive now and in the future.
Join us on Thursday, February 21st for an exciting webinar that explores this shift in employment and occupation trends, as well as discusses strategies to grow a workforce that is ready for tomorrow's opportunities.
Topics to be covered include:
•· Where Economic Development & Workforce Development Collide
•· What This Means for the Economic Development Professional
•· Adaptive Planning, Linguistics and Green Shoots
•· Looking Ahead at the Impact of These Trends
