Recruiting Diversity with Inclusion

Through a generous donation from the RBC Foundation, the Laurier Career Development Centre launched the RBC Career Transition Program for Students with Disabilities in 2007 to meet the needs of Laurier students and alumni with disabilities. While serving students with disabilities remains a key priority, the focus of the program has expanded to include other distinct groups, such as Aboriginal students, queer students, and international students. This inclusive, innovative programming encompasses career-related research, programming, technology, staff development and accessibility to better serve our students, alumni and employers.

Our integrated career development program includes all aspects of career development. We work closely with diverse groups on campus to offer specialized programming and consulting on career-related topics. As a result, our students are ready to enter the professional world and contribute to the workforce. If your company is looking to attract candidates from diverse backgrounds, we would be pleased to work with you.

We appreciate the leadership and support from the RBC Foundation to make this initiative possible.
