Do you remember the excitement and apprehension of being a new graduate? Lana Dadson (BA '21) is in the thick of that experience.
She discovered a love for non-profit work as a Waterloo co-op student. We caught up with Lana just before she graduated in June 2021 to chat about her first full-time job out of school, why she plans to pursue a career in the non-profit sector, and how she feels as she enters a new stage in life.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
