Reliable information is critical for solving problems and driving social innovation. By combining information about community services with cutting-edge technology, 211 is creating a powerful new form of social infrastructure. As a multi-channel information and navigation system, 211 is uniquely situated at the interface between the human needs associated with poverty and society’s policy and programmatic responses.
The support 211 provides is indispensable, particularly for people experiencing poverty and personal trauma who’s complex needs may pose barriers to obtaining help.
Now available to more than 20 million Canadians living in large cities, small towns, and rural and remote communities, 211 will expand to reach an additional 5 million people during the first half of 2018.
This webinar will explore how 211 is increasingly being leveraged by a wide range of stakeholders – people with lived experience, social service agencies, researchers and social planners, governments and other funders – to effectively address poverty.

For the first time, Gen Z students, the generation following Millennials, are looking for their first internships or co-op positions or will be graduating from university. Are you ready to welcome them into your organization?
Every year, TalentEgg conducts a nationwide survey of student opinions, goals and preferences for their future careers and employers of choice and presents the results in a published report to an audience of employers and career educators at the TalentEgg National Campus Recruitment Excellence Awards and Conference.
Over the past year, TalentEgg has been conducting additional informal outreach via social media and online surveys to obtain detailed feedback specifically from the Gen Z cohort in our community of students in university and college, as well as high school. The results reveal a startling departure from the stereotypical “Millennial” that provides a new framework for attracting young talent.
Having grown up as the first native digital generation in history and in the shadow of a global recession, Gen Z young people demonstrate characteristics unique from their millennial predecessors that will influence the way employers attract, engage and recruit top young talent in 2018 and beyond.
Mary Barroll, president of TalentEgg, will provide insights that will help you decode and attract Gen Z and communicate your employer brand most effectively to build your talent pipeline for the future.
Key learning objectives for this webinar include:
- Understand the characteristics of Gen Z and how they differ from Millennials
- Discover what Gen Z are looking for in their careers and employers
- Learn how Gen Z search for job opportunities in the digital landscape
- Identify the optimum media platforms to attract and engage Gen Z candidates
- Strategize how to build an effective and economical pipeline for young talent
This webinar is hosted by Charity Village.
