Quote: “Being part of the ALP helped me get hands-on experience building meaningful programs and driving tangible impact. Through ALP coursework and internships, I gained invaluable skills that I’ve taken with me on my career journey from nonprofit fundraising to driving revenue for tech companies, to now developing strategy for one of the Top 100 Canadian Employers. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to build a solid foundation at Eastman that has enabled me to pursue work I am passionate about in many different spaces.”
