From Insights to Action!

ReframeWork is a national gathering of select thought leaders and innovators on the topic of the future of work hosted by RADIUS SFU and Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. Over 1.5 days we will explore how Canada can lead in forming new systems for good work, and understand where the richest opportunities are to engage Canadians in building the new models we want to see.

While there is rapidly growing interest in the topic of future of work in Canada, with important investments into research to identify risks and trends, there has been little focus on designing, testing and growing models to generate better outcomes for working people, and bridging these insights to influence political and institutional innovation. This is Reframe Work’s focus - we believe that entrepreneurial action has a role to play in shaping future systems - our approach is optimistic, creative and proactive

Goals of ReframeWork are to:

  • Connect a diverse, cross-sector Canadian network with broad perspective and deep expertise on relevant questions about the present and future of work
  • Build a shared understanding of areas of greatest opportunity for innovation and solution-building that can influence broader change
  • Inform program design and areas of focus for a multi-year national future of work innovation program to launch in 2018.

While space is limited, we are still looking for additional perspectives on the future and present of work including business leaders; academics; experts in AI, machine learning and robotics; actors in decentralized economies, platform coops and wealth creation beyond wage earning; and others who see this subject as central to their work.

If you think you should be participating in this event, we would like to hear from you. Please email by January 26th and tell us a bit about yourself.

ReframeWork and the multi-year innovation program launching from it build on the success of the Banff Centre’s 2016 Alt/Now: Economic Inequality innovation program.
