Join hundreds of engineering and geoscience professionals at the APEGA Nexus Conference and be immersed in a virtual experience unlike any other. This year’s conference takes place on June 8 and 9, hosts three exciting keynote presentations, networking opportunities, an exhibition hall, poster sessions, contests, and 25 sessions across five streams—science and technology, practice and regulation, careers and employment, business and leadership, and research and innovation.
Meet Our Keynote Speakers
The conference kicks off with Col. Chris Hadfield’s, O.C., keynote presentation, Preparing for the Unexpected: How to Manage Through Complexity and Change. In his session, Col. Hadfield will draw from his 21 years of experience in the astronaut corps and share his strategies for helping individuals, teams, and leaders prepare for and meet the challenges of our rapidly changing world.
On day two, we welcome award-winning teacher, researcher, and science outreach educator Prof. Maydianne CB Andrade to the virtual centre stage. Dr. Andrade’s presentation, Unconscious Bias and Challenges to Fair Assessment, challenges the status quo, illuminates the harm unconscious biases do to individuals and organizations, and provides actionable strategies to encourage a positive, fair workplace culture.
Murray Smith, an expert in oil and gas development in Canada, wraps up the conference with Headwinds and Tailwinds, a discussion on the way forward for Alberta’s energy sector while tackling the complexity of change.
