Leadership Perspectives

By The Conference Board of Canada

Get closer to our work with The Conference Board of Canada’s Leadership Perspectives series. Each episode, we sit down with senior Conference Board leaders and researchers to discuss issues that affect Canadians. Topics include economics, education, sustainability, HR, and Indigenous and Northern perspectives. We're proud to be Canada's foremost independent, evidence-based applied research organization. Since 1954 we have provided leaders and decision-makers with the economic analysis, applied research, data, networks and events they need to solve Canada's most complex challenges. © The Conference Board of Canada.
