The heritage sector struggles with succession planning. The next generation of workers struggles to connect with older generations, partly stemming from an absence of emerging professionals in spaces dedicated to addressing youth and student training and employment, leaving a critical deficit in information on the impact of current economic and social conditions on these individuals. This has contributed towards a lack of mutual understanding on the needs of emerging professionals’ (eg quality employment) versus the needs of employers (eg skill sets and expertise).
Bringing together four emerging professionals from different fields and three organisations with experience with data relating to the heritage sector’s labour market, this session will identify and explore some of the biggest challenges facing emerging professionals today and the impact this may have on the future of the heritage sector. This session is designed to benefit employers, educators, and emerging professionals, and is formatted as a response to the absence of emerging professionals from discussions on the future of the heritage labour force.
This session is organised as part of ICOMOS Canada’s General Assembly Series.
This session will highlight the research of 5 emerging professionals across 4 presentations examining issues related to Canadian world heritage, international heritage standards, heritage policy, and heritage conservation.
