Thinking about how to prepare your business for the post-pandemic environment? Join us for a virtual session with two co-authors of the Brookfield Institute’s foresight research report: Yesterday’s Gone: Exploring the Future of Canada’s Labour Market in a Post-COVID World. Learn how broad societal trends – such as the shift to virtual activities, and the growing recognition of the importance of equity, inclusion and mental well-being-- might influence the creative sector labour market as the pandemic recedes and a new normal sets in.
