From November 15 to 17 we invite you to join the U of T Career Exploration and Education department as we celebrate National Entrepreneurial Month.  As with our continued goal of amplifying the career stories and lived experiences of our equity deserving Alumni, this month we’ll be putting a spotlight on BIPOC entrepreneurialism.
