Join us on November 10, 2020, for a special edition of the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering’s Disruptors & Dilemmas speaker series, featuring alumni and faculty from U of T Engineering, the Faculty of Law, the Rotman School of Management, and the Temerty Faculty of Medicine.

Disruptors & Dilemmas Presents The View from 2025: Q1 21C pulls together four panelists to focus the conversation on the innovations and challenges in technology, law, healthcare, and the economy, from 2000 onward. As we approach 2025 and the end of the “first quarter” of the 21st century, what have we achieved, and are we going in the right direction?

From climate change to the COVID-19 pandemic to the future of work, our panel members will provide insights on how these different sectors have intertwined to lead us towards the next chapter of the 21st century.

This free virtual speaker panel will be moderated by Claire Kennedy, Chair of University of Toronto’s Governing Council. Guests will be invited to engage in Q&A with the panelists following the discussion.
