Professional Geoscientists Ontario presents its annual Virtual Symposium, providing an opportunity to engage with and discuss some of the most interesting issues and pressing challenges currently facing our professional practice.

Panel Session A: April 16, 2024, from 12:00 noon to 1:30 p.m. ET

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion: Demystifying Registration Practices

This session will focus on raising awareness of the PGO’s process for licensing newcomers to Canada and how to bring equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) into the registration process for these individuals. Efforts from the PGO to ensure the process meets the required knowledge and experience criteria will be discussed, as well as the elimination of the Canadian work experience requirement. The session will also dive into some of the challenges facing international work histories and the programs available for both practitioners and employers. The session will close with a panel discussion that dives deeper into the practical steps professionals and organizations can take to hire with best practices and reduce bias.
