A few spots remaining….Workshop: Attracting and Retaining Top SETT Talent – June 3, 2015 February 23, 2015

Posted by Meaghan Seagrave in June 2015.

NBWICT, NB Women in Engineering and Geoscience, WISE Atlantic and VENN will be hosting a workshop, facilitated by WinSETT, for managers and leaders this coming June.

The workshop is on Attracting and Retaining Top SETT Talent : Towards a Gender Inclusive Workplace, and will occur in Sackville June 3nd, in conjunction with the Atlantic Connections Conference June 3-5, 2015.

What: Workshop on Attracting and Retaining Top SETT Talent
When: June 3, 2015 – 1:00 PM to 5:00PM with registration starting at 12:30PM
Where: Mount Alison University, Avard Dixon Building Room 120

This 1/2 day workshop (on the afternoon of the 3rd) is designed to support strategic planning on gender diversity within organizations, increase awareness of the factors that influence the success of women in SETT organizations, assess current workplace conditions and policies, and share effective practices and strategies to welcome, support and enable employees to contribute, advance, and bring the many benefits of diversity to the organization.

On a higher level, we are hopeful that this program will help organizations address the needs of gendre diversity including:

  • Addressing the skills shortages
  • Supporting employers access a broader base of talent
  • Increased innovation potential
  • Enhanced market development
  • Greater return on human resource investment
  • Stronger financial performance
  • Improved governance

Our target for the workshop in terms of audience are the companies and organizations that have talent needs. The workshop is designed to be intimate and as such we are limiting the participation to 30 ppl max. If this one goes well, we will organize additional ones in the future.

If you or someone from your organization would like to attend, please register: www.genderinclusiveworkshop.eventbrite.ca

Please feel free to share this invitation broadly. Also feel free to contact Meaghan Seagrave (mseagrave@bionb.org) for more information.
