HIPC Takes Part in HYP Day
Hamilton’s Young Professional Group (City HYP) hosted their  4th Annual “HYP Day”, Young Professional Conference on Friday September 13, 2019. This year’s conference theme is “Leading Through Uncertainty”. The program featured a leadership panel, a keynote by Dr. Elizabeth Richardson - Medical Officer of Health, and a town hall with City Manager Janette Smith. HIPC participated in the Trade Show to connect with teams across the City of Hamilton and promote our initiatives. As part of our outreach efforts, we are connecting City staff with newcomer internationally-trained professionals for a mentoring opportunity. The matches occur based on shared expertise in the field between the mentor and mentee. For any City of Hamilton staff who wish to become a mentor for a professional in their field who is newly-arriving to Canada, check this out.
