March Madness at Career Edge Organization

By March 23, 2010August 6th, 2019Uncategorized

On Sunday night, the Paralympics came to a close in Vancouver with a dazzling ceremony and 6,000 spectators, athletes, officials and dignitaries in attendance.

Canada placed third (following Russia and Germany respectively) with ten gold medals, 5 silver and 4 bronze.

While things wind down in Vancouver, here in the GTA we’re just getting started. This week is so jam-packed with exciting events that the folks here at Career Edge Organization are calling it March Madness!

On Monday, our Client Relations and Human Resources Manager, Rizwan Abdul, attended “WIN 2010: Workplace Integration for Newcomers.” Hosted by the Newcomer Centre of Peel (NCP) through the sponsorship of Citizenship and Immigration Canada, the event aims to be “a platform for engaging in open dialogue and devising real world solutions.”

This morning, Rizwan is supporting host employers KPMG and their diversity leader Michael Bach at “Beyond 2010: What’s next in HR and Diversity.” Hosted by Global Learning Initiatives, the breakfast event features topics on demographic data collection, AODA and eLearning.

Our President & CEO Anne Lamont is also keeping busy this week participating in two important roundtable discussions hosted by the Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC). This morning they will gather at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre to discuss the growing Engineering Sector. On Friday, Anne will be joined by our New Business Development Specialist Lisa Carnevale in Mississauga as TRIEC turns its attention to the Biotechnology Sector.

On Thursday we’ll be attending TRIEC’s annual Immigrant Success Awards ceremony and networking event, sponsored by RBC, Canadian HR Reporter, Toronto Star and CBC.

While some of us celebrate with TRIEC Thursday evening, others will be “Networking with the World” with Toronto Board of Trade at their “Multicultural Mega Networking” event.

Finally, as in previous years, we will be exhibiting at the Spring National Job Fair for two full days this week on Wednesday and Thursday at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. This is a definite highlight for us because we get to come face to face with job-seekers – the tremendous and diverse talent that truly is at the core of our organization.

Come visit us there at booths #423 and #425!
