Event Recap: Attracting & Retaining Creative Talent in Windsor

Posted March 17th, 2011 at 12:00 pm

I had the pleasure of participating in a panel discussion recently on behalf of Young Professionals Windsor regarding the issue of keeping creative and innovative professionals in Windsor-Essex.

Great discussion was generated by the panelists and audience members. It was refreshing to hear from other people and organizations in Windsor-Essex, who are invested in empowering the creative industries and creating economic opportunities for these professionals.

The panel, held on March 3, was co-hosted by WindsorEssex Economic Development Corporation, WEtech Alliance and Workforce WindsorEssex as part of their efforts to engage people working in creative industries.

A great recap of the event can be found on OurWindsor.ca. The article features an audio track of the panel session, as well as a link to a video produced by Workforce WindsorEssex.

What’s your thoughts on the creative class in Windsor-Essex? What can be done to bring these workers together and creating an economy that supports their activities?

Connect. Lead. Succeed.
Young Professionals Windsor
