Participation in Cannexus Conference

Cannexus conference

On January 30th, 2024, our Managing Director, Ilona Dougherty, along with our Research Manager, Valentina Castillo, shared some of the preliminary results from our RBC Future Launch Longitudinal Study. The presentation was followed by a panel of young people sharing their perspectives on youth employment. We thank the young panellists Ameen Abdo, Emmanuel Antonin, and Emma Cognet, for sharing their enriching experiences. We also extend our gratitude to Kate Gatto, Farahnaaz Kanji, and the whole Future Launch team for their ongoing support and commitment to this work!
