RBC recently conducted an online initiative called the “Future Launch Future Ready Summit” intended to prepare young people to participate in a post-COVID-19 workforce as they complete their educations. The free event took place on Aug. 26 at <http://www.rbc.com/futureready>. It included advice and personal stories from Canadian professionals, industry experts, young influencers and athletes. It consisted of panel discussions, interviews and other activities focusing on skills development, networking, work experience and mental well-being.
“Empowering young people to stay future-ready starts with coming together to share stories, advice and ideas and to learn from each another,” said Mark Beckles, senior director of youth strategy and innovation at RBC. “In our current reality, doing this in a physical setting has become impossible, while the need to connect has become even greater. Together with our partners, we have continued to pivot and adapt our programming and resources to this new normal. The virtual summit is just one of the ways RBC is helping young people stay future focused.”
