This Black History Month, Co-operative and Experiential Education (CEE) is driving meaningful discussions around actions, tactics, and strategies to build career paths for Black talent. According to the Globe and Mail, Black talent makes up less than 1 per cent of executive leadership roles in Canada. Yet, Black professionals between the ages of 25- 54 are more likely to hold a bachelor's degree or higher than peers in the same age group who are not a visible minority.

As a global leader in work-integrated learning, CEE aims to future-proof our employers, students, and staff. Join our panel discussion to learn more about navigating and ensuring career development for emerging Black talent.

This free virtual event will explore:

  • The career journey of Black talent 
  • Actions to cultivate inclusion and development in the workplace
  • Strategies to work together to build an equitable path


  • Charlotta Carter, CEO, GRI Technology Solutions and Founder, LLENA (AI) Health Solutions Inc.

  • Naomie Seh Abomo, Waterloo Civil Engineering co-op student, University of Waterloo
