CSEE Outreach Director Brad Hayes spoke about CSEE’s Collaborative Recruitment strategy on a panel at the Global Energy Show. Dale Hansen, Dean of the McPhail School of Energy at SAIT chaired the panel, and we were joined by our Collaborative Recruitment colleagues Kerri McGrath, Board Director for the Canadian Heavy Oil Association and Daniel Santiago, Partner Engagement Coordinator at Mount Royal University.

Our session addressed the need for industry and post-secondary institutions to collaborate in showing pre-university students the fascinating study and career opportunities available in energy today, and to steer them toward gaining the STEM background they need to participate. We were supported by the fantastic interactive display put on by SAIT in the Exhibit Hall, where students could put their hands on oil sands, hydrogen generation and other cool energy technology!
