Event description
If we gave you a time machine to go back to your school days, what would you change?

About this Event

For many of us, the formal education we got did not prepare us for the job, creative and/or entrepreneurial venture we have today.

So, for SoGal Ottawa’s second event, we’re inviting everyone—creatives, founders, entrepreneurs, community members—to ask how we can prep ourselves and our youth for the future of work.

And who better to lead this discussion than badass powerhouse, Shauna Pollock: co-founder & director of Ottawa’s leading experimental prototype school, Blue Sky School.

A little about Shauna:

Shauna Pollock is an author, consultant, coach, disruptor and educator. She devotes her time, energy, passion and brainpower to helping people discover their passions, learn and make magic for others. Shauna is the co-founder and director of Blue Sky School in Ottawa, Canada; a recipient of the Prime Minister's Award for Teaching Excellence; author of the book, "Creating Classroom Magic: Using Lessons from the Life of Walt Disney to Create an Experimental Prototype Classroom of Tomorrow;" and the founder of two microschools - a school in a hotel for Syrian newcomers and the Passionate Learner Experiment.

What can you expect?

  • Whistle-stop presentation from Shauna on her journey so far.
  • 30-minute interactive breakout sessions taking us down memory lane to ask: if we were creating a school system from scratch, what would we do differently?
  • ‘Ask Shauna Anything’: a unique, interactive and immersive twist on traditional panel Q&As.
  • Networking, community connections and delicious food!

Come meet the woman disrupting the formal education process and leading the charge for future creatives, founders & entrepreneurs to boldly pursue their ideas in Ottawa.
