Jeanne Sauvé Career Development Program
About the Program
The WCT Jeanne Sauvé Career Development Program is a chance for six participants – one each from Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED), Canadian Heritage and the CRTC, as well as three from private-sector organizations – to take part in a two-week rotation. You'll learn first-hand how private industry, government and regulatory agencies respond to new issues and challenges. You will also examine questions about program design, strategy and how best to meet the needs of customers, legislators and stakeholders. Participants tailor the agenda for this in-depth look at communications regulation and policy.
Who can apply to the program?
WCT members working in management - or preparing for a management role in the communications industry - with a background or experience that makes this program's policy and regulatory focus relevant.
WCT members working at Canadian Heritage, ISED or the CRTC.
