Take Our Kids to Work

How can parents help their sons and daughters learn about the world of work? The Learning Partnership was founded in 1993 to build important bridges between leaders in education and leaders in business. It’s a national charity dedicated to advancing publicly funded education. Take Our Kids to Work is The Learning Partnership’s signature program. It began in Toronto but since 1994 it’s spread across the country. Ian Hartlen is Coordinator of Career Projects and joined us on Career Buzz. He’s a teacher himself who actually taught the grade 10 career course. Ian is project lead for Real Talk, an exciting new app to change the way young people discover careers.

Your Workplace Conference brings together experts and human resource professionals for two days of learning and inspiration. This year the conference was on Sept 23 & 24, and the theme was ‘creating a resilient workforce, and building a thriving workplace.’ Thanks to Vera Asanin and her team at Your Workplace, I attended the conference as your Career Buzz correspondent.

At (33:00), Mark speaks to presenters and keynote speakers, and today we hear two of those interviews: Linda Morgan of The Clic Effect on the Eco-cycle model of change; and Julie Einarson, VP of culture & communication at Benefits by Design on influencing the culture of an organization. Helping me introduce the segments was Sarah Fletcher, associate editor or Your Workplace magazine.
