Celebrating the Diverse Career Paths of EDST Alumni Initiative: Looking Back, Moving Forward
Celebrating the end of the Diverse Career Paths of EDST Alumni, a two-year student-led initiative, which drew on EDST alumni’s career experiences to support graduate students in exploring diverse career pathways across sectors, degrees and program areas. Through this initiative, we organized multiple events, created resources, and surveyed EDST alumni from 1960 to 2020 regarding their work and how their programs made a difference in their careers.
At this event, we look back and share insights from what we learned. Guest speakers will share their vision on how the Department of Educational Studies (EDST), Education faculty, and the broader university community can leverage insights from the initiative moving forward.
Dean Jan Hare will lead us in learning about the Indigenous “hands back, hands forward” teachings which refer to how we can learn from our predecessors and share those teachings with those who follow. We view alumni as extended family who can share their knowledge with current graduate students. In this event, we aim to recognize and thank alumni for their profound contributions and gifts of intergenerational learning which were the foundation for this initiative.
