Advocating for your Needs in the Workplace
This virtual workshop is for any Okanagan College student or alumni who wants to grow self-advocacy skills in the workplace or work-like settings, including Work Integrated Learning (WIL) which includes practicums, work experience, clinical placements, apprenticeships and co-ops, among others.
