LEADING CHANGE VIRTUAL
ABOUT LEADING CHANGE VIRTUAL
Under the umbrella of the recently launched GLOBE Virtual Resilience and Transformation Series, Leading Change Virtual brings the best elements of the face-to-face Forum to an online stage. Over the coming weeks we’ll be rolling out interactive dialogues on issues that matter to young people and virtual coffee chats with sustainability heavy-hitters.
With as much as $2.5 trillion USD expected to be spent on clean technology development by 2022 and investment and societal signals driving stronger action on climate change, it’s clear that the changes of tomorrow will be driven by the inventors of today. Not surprisingly, interest in entrepreneurship has grown among youth who are looking for challenging, meaningful, and impact-oriented careers.
Have you ever thought of a career in cleantech but are not entirely sure where to start? Then please join us for an insightful conversation with four Canadian cleantech founders to discuss the challenges, opportunities, and pivots they’ve made along their start-up journey.
The conversation will focus on students, recent graduates, and young people who are active in the cleantech sector or are looking to learn more about the sector. This webinar is open to the public.

Join Chantale Despres, Director – Sustainability, Finance at CN Railway for an intimate leadership coffee chat. Chantale has a wealth of knowledge and experience surrounding internal change projects and making the “business case” for sustainability.
Leading Change was pleased to share a special Leadership Coffee Chat opportunity with The Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Environment and Climate Change for the Government of Canada.
This virtual event took place during Environment Week and highlighted the linkages between nature protection, biodiversity, the climate change agenda, and economic prosperity in the post-COVID-19 world.
The current global health crisis and economic downturn mean many organizations are, or will be, cutting back on recruitment activities. What does this mean for young people hoping to enter the workforce and advance sustainability priorities? Participants heard from people who have faced rough markets or roadblocks on their path to securing meaningful employment. They offered empathetic insight, tips, and strategies for pursuing a career path with purpose when times are tough.
Content focused on students, recent graduates, and young people seeking sustainability-related employment.
