It’s a real pleasure, as the new director of Queen’s IRC, to introduce you to our Fall 2018 – Fall 2019 programming.
I’ve been with the IRC for over fifteen years, and during that time, I’ve had exceptional opportunities to learn from and with colleagues, program participants and organizations across a broad range of industries. These relationships have been integral to the success of the Centre, and to my own professional growth. They are also the foundation of a progressive culture of community and wellbeing in our workplaces.
We work hard at Queen’s IRC to model that culture. Our participants tell us how much they appreciate our personal approach, collegial atmosphere and support beyond the classroom. Our programs are rooted in academic rigour and complemented by our faculty’s professional, real-world experiences, but they are also valued for exceptional networking opportunities, mentorship and shared values for creating positive spaces for growth and collaboration. Our programs are dynamic, relevant and vital for those who want to excel in today’s complex and evolving HR, LR and OD fields.
I’m very excited to embark on my first year as Director, and as I begin my journey, I hope that you are also planning to begin or continue your own path towards personal and professional growth this year.
