Decoding the Gen Z Factor @ Online
Jan 25 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

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.

Student Drug Use in Ontario: Results of the 2017 OSDUHS Survey @ Online
Jan 31 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Youth substance use and addiction is a priority within Ontario. The webinar will focus on the substance use findings from the 2017 Ontario Student Drug Use and Health Survey (OSDUHS).

Although rates of substance use have declined among youth, key issues such as alcohol, cannabis and tobacco use continue to be a concern. Many sectors, including health, justice, and education, have a role to play in addressing these issues.

The findings of the OSDUHS can help educators, public health professionals, policy-makers, and other youth-serving professionals understand drug use trends as a way to inform related activities and services.

This webinar will:

  • Introduce the 2017 OSDUHS drug use results;
  • Discuss key trends of drug use among Ontario students;
  • Hear from panel OSDUHS researchers and from a CAMH clinical expert

This webinar is hosted by the CAMH Provincial System Support Program.

Building Strengths-Based Resilience in Students @ Online
Jan 31 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Promoting mental health encourages the development of resilience. The reverse is also true: promoting resilience leads to better mental health. As resilience involves being able to recover from difficulties or change—to function as well as before and then move forward – students who are resilient can effectively cope with, or adapt to, stress and challenging life situations.

Strengths-based resilience is designed to help students develop resilience, to equip them with knowledge, and then to use their strengths in difficult times.

Presenters:
Dr. Tayyab Rashid is a licensed clinical psychologist at the Health & Wellness Centre, and an associate faculty in the graduate psychological clinical science program at the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC)

This webinar is a collaboration between the University of Toronto Scarborough and CICMH.
