Our Goal

Sharing information about ecosystem projects and related topics during conception, development and operation is one of the core objectives of the Ecosystem Foundry Working Group. In this way we hope through community participation to make project outcomes better and to expand our thinking about what a successful ToIP ecosystem is. We have been fortunate to have hosted many thought-provoking presentations at the EFWG since its inception. We will continue the series into 2022 and hope to see everyone there!

Share Your Community

If you or someone you know would be interested in getting on the 2022 Presentation Series Calendar please reach out to:

We are primarily looking for organizations and individuals that fall into one or more of the following categories:

  • Contemplating, building or operating a ToIP aligned ecosystem
  • Dealing with business challenges that involve identity, credentials, trust or privacy (may or may not already be looking into ToIP topics)
  • Have interesting insights related to encouraging the proliferation of ToIP aligned ecosystems

Exploring The Talent Marketplace. Human Resource functions are having to respond to rapid shifts in talent, both internally and externally. Internally, companies are now operating as a network of teams to better utilize existing skills, provide more agility to the business, and reduce the high cost of recruiting people. Externally, individuals with niche and specialized skills that businesses need are electing to test the contract work waters and let demand in the market provide them top dollar while also enjoying the benefits of governing their own work commitments. These shifts are raising the need for sophisticated talent marketplaces that help find, assess, and verify skills of individuals and integrate that information into core HCM systems to enable HR and people leaders to align and support workers, improve internal processes and enhance customer experience.

Jessica Townsend, Dan Brown and Colin Strasburg from Accenture will join us on February 3rd to share the relevance of dynamic work credentials and certifications and how use of verifiable credentials will improve the way internal and external talent is managed and how standing up these trusted networks enable the future of work.

She holds a PhD in Land Reclamation from the University of Alberta where she worked on habitat restoration for endangered prairie species. Autumn's research interests lie at the intersection of restoration and conservation: restoring ecological goods and services to anthropogenically disturbed systems to create functional habitat and promote ecosystem function and health.Working Spaces Are Ecosystems Too! An ecosystem is a community of living organisms interacting with each other and their physical environment. When you hear that definition, you might picture a pristine nature landscape, but that definition can also apply to how businesses, individuals, or organizations interact with one another. Let’s talk about natural ecosystems and how we can adapt nature’s lessons to our industry ecosystems.Zoom Link
