Webinar: Supporting Young Innovators
Young people, 15 to 25 years old, are uniquely positioned to innovate, and yet often their full potential is not being tapped into.
On Wednesday June 22 at 12:30pm (EDT) join us for a webinar discussion with Ilona Dougherty as she shares research conducted as part of the Youth & Innovation Research Project at the University of Waterloo, and outlines how educators and those working with young leaders and innovators can better support them. This evidence-based perspective on how intergenerational partnerships can drive innovation is the basis of an upcoming book to be published in 2017.
