Video Presentation on Building Better Jobs After COVID

Centre for Future Work Director Jim Stanford recently participated in the Cannexus21 conference, hosted by CERIC (a non-profit organization that promotes career counselling and career development in Canada). His topic was how to create better jobs, and a stronger labour market, after the COVID pandemic and its catastrophic impacts on workers – especially workers in low-wage, insecure jobs. The presentation updates material from our earlier paper, 10 Ways the COVID Pandemic Must Change Work for Good, published through our PowerShare project.

Here is a link to his 30-minute presentation, followed by a few questions from the audience.

We are grateful to CEIC and Cannexus for the opportunity to participate in the conference!
