ASPECT Conference 2020 Call for Speakers & Presenters
About Presenting at the ASPECT Conference
ASPECT is a non-profit association of approximately 100 community-based training agencies in British Columbia that collectively strives to prepare people for the world of work. The ASPECT conference is about sharing and learning: from keynotes, workshop presenters, sponsors, exhibitors and peers.
The community-based employment training sector continues the historic mission of providing holistic, collaborative and career development opportunities and employment preparation to the unemployed people including people with disabilities, new immigrants, youth, Indigenous peoples, women and more.
Our members are also a resource for employers and economic development within their communities. Our members respond quickly to local labour market needs as demonstrated by the challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year ASPECT Conference celebrates 30 years of bringing the employment sector together! We are stronger when we are together, even when we are apart.
Join us for our 30th conference while we work together to get BC back to work in a safe, supported, and informed way. This year’s conference aims to support all front line workers, executives and other employment professionals passionate about helping British Columbians find and maintain meaningful employment.
