Lean Out, Not In! (And Shatter The Glass Ceiling Once And For All)

Despite years of climbing corporate ladders women are still lagging behind. Many are stalling at mid-career while others are leaving to find more balanced and meaningful work. Most are working way too hard simply trying to have a real life and a work life at the same time.

While men continue to move into the upper levels, women are told that they simply need to be more courageous or work harder to get to the top. As suggested by Sheryl Sandberg in her best-selling book, women just need to “Lean In.”

In this presentation, Maureen Fitzgerald, PhD—a recovering lawyer and change agent—shatters the thinking that women need to work harder and shines a bright light on the hidden reasons why women are not progressing.

As Fitzgerald says, “there is nothing wrong with women, but there is definitely something wrong with the way we treat them. The real culprit is not women, but rather our whole culture and out-dated mindsets.”

International Student Attraction in the Era of Brexit and Trump

Recent political developments in the U.K. and U.S. bring into question whether those countries will continue to appeal to international students. Some argue that Brexit, changes to U.K. immigration policies, and Trump’s rhetoric will benefit competitor nations such as Canada, who also look to attract international students.

However, while politics has a major influence on the decision making of international students, other factors also play a role. Uri Carnat of IDP Education provides an overview of these factors and how they are currently impacting the international student landscape.

Uri looks at the latest international student statistics, focusing on Canada, the U.K., U.S., Australia, and New Zealand. In comparison with these countries, what are Canada’s advantages, and where is it falling short? How can Canada address its shortcomings?

Uri also provides insights on key international student source countries and how these developments will impact Canada.

Five Foreign Qualification Recognition Research Projects That Need a Home

In recent years, Canada has made significant progress in improving its foreign qualification recognition (FQR) processes. But systemic problems continue to impede the integration of skilled immigrants into regulated professions. This 60-minute session will focus on five areas where additional research could help to improve the assessment and admission of internationally educated individuals seeking licensure in Canada.

Specific attention and potential project ideas will be offered for the following topics:

  • The effectiveness of “alternate career” guidance
  • Assessments for mid-career applicants
  • Creating a sustainable approach to “bridging”
  • Improving access for clinical placements pre-licensure
  • Defining the role and responsibility of the modern regulator

Join Keith Johnson, one of Canada’s leading FQR experts, as he outlines what these FQR problems are, their effects, the role of specific research in addressing the problems—and the potential positive outcomes of doing so.
