#worldforce Day is a unique and innovative one-day conference to provide Internationally Educated Professionals (IEP) with an opportunity to explore careers in health care, network with SRH staff, and learn strategies for career advancement in Ontario.
It provides vital connections among the hospital, skilled professionals in the Scarborough community and post-secondary academic institutions. These links will not only support skilled professionals as they connect their skills with meaningful opportunities to re-enter their profession, but will also cultivate meaningful opportunities for building future capacity at the hospital and enhancing employee engagement.
The conference includes a panel discussion and strategy sessions to help participants gain insight into the employment process and the multitude of careers SRH has to offer, as well as tours based on areas of interest that include clinical, administrative and support services.
Skilled immigrants continue to face challenges connecting to meaningful employment aligned with their education, skills and work experience, and the goal of #worldforce Day is to accelerate their integration by linking them with vital resources, mentoring and sharing of best practices, as well as to build a diverse pipeline of talent to better serve our multi-cultural community.
