The Fourth Conference on the Leader Engineer will focus on the experiences of early career engineers in the workplace. In particular, the conference will share research on two major topics: 1) workplace adjustment, including the topics of professional challenges, workplace learning, and leadership; and 2) workplace supports with a specific focus on mentorship. These topics will be discussed from the perspectives of early career engineers, managers, and human resources professionals. Through research presentations and interactive activities, the conference will allow participants to gain practical insights into issues of workplace adjustment of early career engineers. It will also help companies develop strategies to enhance the integration, training, and retention of young talent.
The conference is exclusive to CoP partner companies. It is intended for engineers at all career stages and for those concerned with the professional development of engineers such as managers and HR/PD professionals. The conference will also be attended by selected UofT engineering students and leadership development staff.
