As Summer 2021 comes to a close, so too does the 2021 Pathways to Professions. This year, NB-IRDT is proud to have hosted 20 students from the University of New Brunswick and St. Thomas University – all of whom completed NB-relevant research projects and participated in our full curriculum of research and professionalism workshops.

2021 students, we wish you all the best as you return to school or embark on new careers!

What is Pathways to Professions (P2P)?

Pathways to Professions (or, P2P) is a 13-week experiential research program launched by NB-IRDT in 2020. It offers post-secondary students in NB a paid opportunity to become involved in research on priority areas in the province, such as health care, education, population demographics, and more. Along with hands-on research, P2P also offers students the opportunity to enhance their employability through training in soft skills, such as effective writing, emotional intelligence, assertiveness, and more.

The newly released 2021 Program in Review provides a more comprehensive overview of the P2P program, including this year’s workshops, and highlights the results of all five student research streams.

The 2021 Program in Review would not exist without the hard work and creative determination of Ally Buchanan, the 2021 P2P student outreach coordinator.

Ally just finished her Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Leadership at the University of New Brunswick and is now pursuing a Master’s of Public Policy at the University of Toronto. Ally loves movies, beaches, and drinking way too much coffee. She hopes to continue into a career in policy, specifically international and social policy.
