More than a million new jobs will need to be filled in B.C. over the next decade, 81 per cent of which will require post-secondary education. And skills learned at university are the most in demand by sectors which are drivers of BC’s future economy.
Businesses and employers point to this “talent gap” as one of the most significant challenges ahead. And talent development was a key priority of the Stronger BC Economic Plan recently released by the Province.
In her second address to the Board of Trade, SFU President Joy Johnson will explain how this challenge provides a generational opportunity for B.C. to develop, attract and retain the talent it needs to drive innovation and growth. Dr. Johnson will describe how SFU and other institutions are stepping up to meet this challenge in innovative ways, and what further action is needed by government, business and the post-secondary sector to develop the talent required to secure B.C.’s economic future.
Boyden is proud to join the event as Supporting Sponsor.
