Career Exploration with the Grade 10s

On Wednesday, January 19, in a collaboration with the Career-Life-Connections Program and the Alumnae Office, six alumnae presented to students about their university paths and career journeys. The purpose of the event was to give students the opportunity to hear from alumnae about their careers and the decisions they made along the way. Six different industries were represented and these included Law, Architecture and Design, Business and Commercial Real Estate, Medicine & Neurology, Communications & Public Relations, and Health Sciences & Counselling Psychology.

Students were engaged and proactive in the Q+As that followed each of the sessions and our hope is that these conversations fuel further interest and exploration of potential career pathways and future opportunities.

Career & Life Connections Parent Speaker Panel

On February 4, 2019, York House School held its second Parent Speaker Series panel, developed around the theme of ‘Innovative Careers and Career Pathways’. This initiative was developed as part of our new Career & Life Connections program (CLC) at the Senior School.  

One of the goals of this year’s Career & Life Connections Parent Speaker Series is to connect our girls even more with the broad range of wonderful mentors we have within our community. Education and the world of work is changing, in part due to the rapid advancement of technology and its impact. As such, this year’s series invites students to learn about careers and career pathways they might not usually consider or even know about, under the theme of innovation.

Thank you to the following YHS parents for speaking to senior students about your innovative careers and career pathways:

  • Emily Ohler, BC Human Rights Tribunal
  • Robin Jones, Chief Marketing Officer, Payfirma
  • Danielle Wilmore, Owner/Designer, Pyrrha Jewelry
  • Rian Gauvreau, COO & Founder, Clio
