2020 marks 30 years since the first graduate of the Centre for Industrial Relations and Human Resources’ doctoral program received her PhD. In the years since then, close to 50 outstanding individuals have completed their doctoral studies at the Centre, forming a tight-night network of research collaborators and an enduring legacy of contributions to our understanding of employment relationships in Canada and globally.
Our doctoral alumni can be found coast to coast at Canadian universities, as well as at universities across the United States and around the world. Other graduates have taken policy-related roles in professional unions, various ministries of the Ontario government and even at the OECD in Paris.
Over the course of the 2019-2020 academic year, the CIRHR will be publishing profiles that bring the research and careers of all our PhD alumni together in one place. We hope you will join us in celebrating the achievements of our PhD graduates.
