Great Sandeep. Thank you. We are to be Champions and Brave Leaders.
To your question about strategy for outreach and change, the NL Workforce Innovation Centre at the College of the North Atlantic is implementing a key stakeholder engagement initiative focused on underrepresented groups and specifically consultations with organizations and clients representing underrepresented groups, with government departments, a virtual larger Stakeholder Engagement session and a final report with recommendations. Key to this and all of the NLWIC's work is dissemination workshops to educate and capacity-building on use of evidence/results, and share for replication where possible and scale-up including adoption and change new policies, programs, and/or service delivery models by all of the labour market stakeholders.
Shanza Khan
Thank you Amelia for sharing your story.
