Event Details

You’re invited to attend a virtual ceremony to recognize the recipients of the Co-operative and Experiential Education (CEE) Employer Impact Awards on Thursday, October 7, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. ET.

This event will honour a select number of CEE employers who have made a significant and meaningful impact on their co-op students, their industry and our larger campus community.

New this year: Following our formal ceremony, we will host a roundtable discussion with a selection of our employer award winners from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET. Moderated by Dr. Norah McRae, associate provost of Co-operative and Experiential Education, the purpose of this discussion is to understand the lessons our employers have learned throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and how they’ve reframed their strategies to adapt and prepare for a complex future workforce.

With a global network of more than 7,500 distinguished employers in over 65 countries, CEE’s employers provide quality work-integrated learning experiences, as well as opportunities for growth, training and development, to more than 25,000 students from the University of Waterloo. Our students are successfully prepared to enter the future workforce thanks to the commitment and guidance of our valued employers.

We hope you can join us as we celebrate our incredible employer champions and hear the first public acknowledgements of our 2020 award recipients.
