Breanna Williams, Phoebe PickleThird-year students Breanna Williams and Phoebe Pickle look at some of the “Your Degree. Your Direction.” posters on display in the Leddy Library.

Poster campaign highlights alumni career paths

The “Your Degree. Your Direction.” campaign aims to offer students a peek into the work lives of early- and mid-career alumni with evolving, interesting, and fulfilling careers.

A project of the Office of the Provost, it comprises poster installations across campus. They have recently been updated to showcase another group of grads.

While some subjects are superstars in their fields, all of them spend their days doing interesting work in thought-provoking and often unexpected ways. The project’s goal is to expose current students to a wide range of career stories, broadening the spectrum of professional futures to which they might aspire.

Among those featured on the new collection of 15 posters are:

  • Kayla Dodson, a strength and conditioning coach for Canadian athletes;
  • tech entrepreneur Emilie Cushman, helping world-class brands and influencers; and
  • international human rights lawyer Michelle Oliel.

“It’s been our distinct pleasure to reconnect with so many excellent young professionals, each of whom exemplifies the value of a University of Windsor education in their own unique and inspiring way,” said Jeff Berryman, associate vice-president, academic. “This collection of posters reinforces my firm belief that our graduates are ambitious, accomplished, and agile enough to create truly meaningful professional lives in Windsor, elsewhere in Canada, and around the world.”
