Emma Frappier speaking to students

Last week we wrapped up the fall term with the Safka Speaker Series in Industrial Relations featuring guest lecturer Emma Frappier (MIR'18), Labour Relations Specialist, Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO).

On December 1, MIR students in Professor Lilius' Organizational Behaviour course presented their organizational analysis projects - looking at a live issue in a real organization and using peer-reviewed research to both propose a change to address the issue and navigate stakeholder reactions.  

The project moved to an infographic format, rather than academic posters, in line with the translation of research to practice. 

Staff and faculty were invited to attend the session, view the posters, and hear more about the issues and proposed solutions from the MIR students.

Congratulations to Adjunct Professor Tony Giles on being among the recipients of the Canadian Industrial Relations Association / Association canadienne des relations industrielles (CIRA-ACRI) Canadian Freedom of Association Award award.

The annual award recognizes an outstanding contribution on promoting understanding of, and compliance with international standards regarding the right to organize and bargain collectively, as those standards apply to Canada.

A silver lining of the remote delivery of the MIR program during 2020-21 academic year is that we were able to “bring in” an incredible number of our wonderful Alumni to speak virtually with our MIR class, in a variety of ways! It all began when we had an overwhelming response to our call for Orientation Week Alumni Roundtable participants - we needed to channel this generosity!
