The Forum was opened by The Honourable Dr. John Hamm, recently retired Premier of Nova Scotia shown here being greeted by HRP Board Chair Dr. Paul Dixon, NSCC Aviation Institute Director Captain Peter Bing, and Jim King, President of the HRP.
More than 150 people representing all segments of the Workforce constituency from across Canada took part in a focussed and dynamic series of discussions on issues and solution seeking sessions. Many of the students of the Aviation Institute actively participated. "The three R'sÂ¨ was conducted in two tracks. Track One, the Strategy Forum, featured speakers and panelists from industry, education and training, and policy leaders from all levels of government. Each session included free-ranging discussion and development of recommendations for future initiatives. One panel focused on Diversity in the Workplace - under-represented Groups - new Canadians, Aboriginal and African-Nova Scotian people and women.
Track Two focused on careers and the needs of people looking for a career. It gave them the opportunity to meet people from industry and learn more about the opportunities, challenges and rewards of highly skilled careers in Aerospace and Defence.
