Seneca, with support from TD Bank Group, has extended its successful Career Recharge series of free upskilling sessions through 2021. These sessions aim to help mid-career professionals re-enter the workforce, advance in their field, change careers or start a new venture.
More than 4,800 participants have attended workshops, in-person prior to the pandemic and online since the pandemic. The participants included 64 per cent women; 48 per cent identifying as a visible minority and 74 per cent over the age of 29. Research from Statistics Canada has shown that the pandemic has disproportionally affected women and racial minorities.
The program, delivered through Seneca’s on-campus incubator HELIX, has new sessions available that are delivered in two-hour workshops and adapted to focus on the realities of COVID-19 and adjusting to a virtual work environment. Workshops being offered include Taking Advantage of Change; Women in Leadership and Cultural Intelligence & Diversity.
