Community Connection Series: Indigenous Career Stories – Finding Community and Meaning in the World of Work

January 27 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

The Centre for Student Involvement & Careers invites you to participate in our upcoming Community Connection Event, sponsored by TD and Rogers Communications. The event is open to all students.

Our January event titled ‘Indigenous Career Stories: Finding Community and Meaning in the World of Work’ will focus on exploring the intersections of our panelist’s Indigenous identities and the world of work.

Our panelists will share their lived experiences, talk about their personal journeys and professional growth, and will focus on the unique opportunities and strengths that their individual identities have provided them in their career paths.

This event will consist of two halves: a panel portion which will be recorded through Zoom, followed by a more informal panelist AMA. The small group conversations will not be recorded.
