COVID - From Pandemic to Endemic – Angst in the Workplace & Realignment Through a Lens of Compassion & Empathy

About this event

As we continue to navigate through the challenges COVID-19 has presented, perception has shifted on viewing this as a more endemic than pandemic state, where we will have to learn to live with the prevalence of COVID-19.

Please join us for our Annual Joan Burton Day of Learning event where we will explore challenges and opportunities for employers and employees as they navigate through emerging issues, such as return to on-site work, reinstating social connection, changing public health covid guidelines, and “mask/vaccine harassment.”

We will provide new and emerging data on these issues, and our speakers and panel will discuss the What? Now What? Implications for workers and employers. Attendees will take away actionable next steps for all workplace stakeholders to consider.


Wayne Clancy - Founder and CEO, MindSuiteMetrics,

Luke Mathers - Australian mental health trainer/facilitator,

Interactive Panel Discussion – Wayne and Luke will be joined by representatives from both labour and management, such as Audette Dundas, Manager, Human Resources (Ontario Power Generation).
