Carer involvement for school outcomes for children in care

This seminar will present work from a new and in-depth longitudinal analysis of carer involvement in the education of 690 teenagers in foster and kinship care in Ontario over a period of four years. The study examined home and school based involvement as well as academic socialisation, and analysed how these are linked with school performance.

Sommet Femmes et leadership 2018

Autour du globe, il devient manifeste que l’avancement des femmes constitue un facteur prépondérant pour faire progresser la société, améliorer la santé des populations mondiales et accroître la richesse économique des nations. Cependant, les femmes se heurtent souvent à des obstacles structurels lorsqu’il s’agit de faire avancer leur carrière et de gravir les échelons supérieurs menant au succès professionnel. Si on constate des progrès dans ce domaine dans certains pays, en revanche les statistiques sur la parité des sexes montrent qu’il en va autrement au Canada.

2018 Women's Leadership Summit

Throughout the world, the advancement of women is proving to be a determining factor in societal progress, global health improvements and increases in national wealth. However, women often face structural barriers to career advancement and to reaching the highest echelons of professional success. While other countries are making great strides, statistics on gender parity in Canada do not reflect similar progress.

Du milieu universitaire à la fonction publique : le périple en deux actes d’une évaluatrice de programmes
(Présentation en anglais)

La transition des études supérieures au milieu de travail peut être non linéaire et imprévisible, tout en se révélant enrichissante au bout du compte. Je parlerai du parcours qui m’a menée de l’environnement universitaire à la fonction publique, et plus précisément au Service correctionnel du Canada (SCC). J’aborderai en outre l’évaluation de programmes dans le contexte du SCC.

From academia to the public service: The tale of a program evaluator in two acts
The transition from graduate studies to the workforce can be both non-linear and unpredictable, yet ultimately rewarding. I will speak about my path from the academic environment to working in a public service setting, specifically the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC). I will also discuss program evaluation in the context of the CSC.

Contextualisation de la fermeture d’une école communautaire

Contextualisation de la fermeture d’une école communautaire urbaine : les politiques de l’Ontario, la politique municipale et l’érosion de la citoyenneté
(Présentation en anglais)
Les dernières études qui touchent à la fermeture des écoles — plus particulièrement celles qui proviennent des É.-U. — ont tendance à souligner le rôle des politiques néolibérales. Dans quelle mesure le néolibéralisme est-il pertinent pour expliquer les fermetures d’écoles dans le contexte des politiques ontariennes ?

Contextualizing the closure of an urban community school

Contextualizing the closure of an urban community school: Ontario policy, municipal politics, and the erosion of citizenship
Recent research on school closures, particularly from the US, tends to emphasize the role of neoliberal policies. To what degree is neoliberalism a useful explanation for school closures in the Ontario policy context? This presentation examines the historical, geographic, political, and policy context of a recent school closure in Ottawa.
