We asked our graduates and students about their achievements since graduation and joining the program. Here are some of the great things they are doing.
Robert Waite, graduate of the 2008/09 Cohort of the CSR Certificate, notified us that he started his own firm, Waite + Co. in 2010, where CSR is one of his company's practice areas. In 2014 he was engaged by the United Nations to conduct a week-long program on CSR in Barbados for ten Caribbean postal administrations (building on the work he had done at Canada Post). In 2016 he became a professor at Seneca College, teaching in the graduate public relations program. He includes CSR and CSR reporting in his curriculum each semester. He also frequently writes for Huffington Post on a variety of topics.
Anna Polatschek graduated from the Class of 2012/13. Anna, now working for Ernst & Young, spearheaded the Rio Olympic Legacy Volunteer Program in 2016. This program connected 27 EY professionals from across multiple areas and eight different countries to a handful of local non-governmental organizations. In the three months leading to the Olympics, volunteers working remotely offered their expertise to community organizations that would not have been able to afford their services. For Anna, the opportunity to participate in a project that focused on a corporate social responsibility initiative was especially attractive. She has always been attracted to the idea of contributing to society. (Credit: Concordia in the News).
