Toronto In Person event – Canadian Knowledge Mobilization Forum Gathering

The Future Skills Needed for Knowledge Mobilization – Friday, June 17, 2022

You are warmly invited to attend an afternoon in-person event as part of the 2022 Canadian Knowledge Mobilization Forum (CKF).  This event has been organized by the Knowledge Mobilization (KMb) Unit at York University and is part of a series of regional in-person events aligned to CKF.  Click here to learn more about the bi-annual CKF which takes place June 13-17, 2022 (virtually).

This event will focus on the future of knowledge mobilization work.  With a renowned keynote speaker and a dynamic panel, together, we will explore the skills needed for successful KMb work in the future.  It has been some time since we’ve been able to convene in person, so we will make sure there is time to connect.  Also, we want to create a safe and comfortable environment for everyone.  While masking is not required, it is recommended.
