Yesterday I participated in a panel discussion at Wilfred Laurier University entitled: Getting a Foot in the Door? Debating Unpaid Internships. I would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to Greig de Peuter for organizing this event and to the Council for the Intellectual and Cultural Development of the Arts at Wilfrid Laurier University for funding it.
It was fantastic to see such a great turn out from students, academics, and university administration! The other panel members, Andrew Langille, Jainna Patel, and Agata Zieba, did a great job explaining many aspects of issues surrounding unpaid internships.
