JEDI Plenary

October 2016 Plenary

  Register for the October 2016 JEDI Plenary in Fredericton

Learn how-to Navigate the Future in ICT!

On October 12th, learn how JEDI is not only training Aboriginal people to work in the ICT industry but finding them jobs!

John Bernard, from Madawaska First Nation and owner and president of Donna Cona Inc, will be our keynote speaker for the day. In addition, the plenary will highlight some of JEDI's successful partnerships with the ICT industry, share our plans for future ICT training programs, and reveal the exciting plans of our 2nd Aboriginal Business Accelerator program starting this Fall.

The event will begin with breakfast so plan to be there the whole day to learn how JEDI's programs can help you begin your career in ICT. Or if you are an ICT company, come learn about the growing pool of Aboriginal talent that is looking for work in the ICT industry.

Please contact JEDI at 1-888-884-9870 or 506-444-5650 with any questions or requests.
