Participant Profile

Shaunna-Marie Kerr

Manager, WES Global Talent Bridge

BA Honours History and Urban Studies, Liberal Arts and Professional Studies, 2010

As a student in the Liberal Arts, specifically History, I cannot tell you how many times it was assumed by others that my only career option was as a teacher. Especially in the job market I was graduating into, it didn't feel like there were a tonne of options for a new grad like me. Its been almost a decade (rounding!) since I graduated, and my career path has evolved and expanded in ways I could never have imagined. I'd love to chat about the path less traveled, and how I found my passion in a career outside of the private sector in non-profits.
