Live, Laugh... Layoffs!

When:  Mar 22, 2023 from 05:00 PM to 07:00 PM (MT)
Associated with  CFA Society Calgary


Live, laugh… layoffs! In recent months, the technology sector around the world has shed thousands of jobs, including in Alberta.

 Are we seeing a reckoning in the tech industry that has enjoyed tremendous growth in recent years, often prioritizing growth over profitability?

Is the industry right-sizing itself as it enters a new, more measured, and sustainable growth phase?

 What are the implications of this new environment on Alberta’s ability to diversify its workforce and economy?

 What lessons can be learned from past layoff cycles and applied to understand the current environment? 

 What opportunities does the tech transition create for new graduates, existing professionals, and investors?

Join us in-person on Wednesday, March 22 for an intimate evening of networking over food and drinks at the Hudson, followed by an enlightening panel discussion that will address these questions and more. 

The panel discussion features:

- Alina Oprea, CFA, CFP

- Sarah Hargreaves-Hawitt, ICD.D
- Tonya Fleming, LLB, MBA

(Event presented in collaboration with WCM Alberta).
