Upskilling to address grand challenges
Organizer: McMaster University

This panel will review the current best practices in professional upskilling, and the need to grasp and focus on the overlap between three challenges:
- Integration of technology
- Professional workforce development & collaboration
The panel will discuss and identify the primary threats, mitigation strategies and opportunities that businesses and professionals can focus on to address immediate competitiveness, resiliency and growth.
