Emerging Professionals Speed Networking event

Thu. Feb. 5, 2015

On February 5th, the MDP program and the CN Indigenous Resource Centre hosted its first Emerging Professionals Speed Networking event. The event brought together MDP students and organizations engaged in Indigenous Development, including organizations from the private, public and not for profit sectors. For our students, this was an ideal opportunity to learn about the many potential career opportunities that exist within the broad area of Indigenous development and offered them the occasion to showcase their skills and interests with prospective employers. Likewise, the event cast our community partners as professional mentors, generously sharing their experiences and insight as practitioners. Feedback from students and professional mentors was such that MDP and the CN IRC plan on making this an annual event! Many thanks to all participants for making this event such a success.
