Event Details

This Black History Month, Co-operative and Experiential Education (CEE) will reflect upon, celebrate and dedicate time to the Black experience in the workplace. According to a 2022 report by KPMG, 70 per cent of Black employees in Canada feel they must work harder than their non-Black peers to earn the same respect.

As a global leader in work-integrated learning, CEE aims to future-proof our employers, students and staff by providing valuable learning opportunities. Join our ‘Elevating Black excellence in the workplace’ panel discussion to learn about building a more equitable future.

At this free virtual event we will explore: 

  • Real stories about the barriers and opportunities for the future. 
  • Tactics employers are using to highlight, create opportunities and foster belonging for Black talent 
  • Ways we can better future-proof Black co-op students
