Retail Council of Canada

The pandemic rolled through the world triggering waves of unprecedented change. The impact on retail will be studied and analyzed for decades. And what about the toll it’s taken on the Canadian workforce? What lessons have we learned? How has Walmart Canada adapted and what does the Future of Work look like at one of the country’s largest employers? Join Nabeela Ixtabalan as she shares a first-hand account of navigating the pandemic both personally and professionally, and the urgent need to make mental health and well-being a priority for workers in companies of all sizes. The session will conclude with a discussion between Ixtabalan and special guests Chester Elton and Ariana Huffington.
