The University of Ottawa's Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies and the Teaching and Learning Support Service have created a professional skills development program for master's and PhD students and postdoctoral fellows. The goal of the "Altitude" program is to help graduate students access the workforce by providing activities to develop professional skills that complement the ones acquired in graduate programs. In addition to skills in support of an academic career, the program will offer activities related to career development, communication and writing skills, ethics and social responsibility, leadership, and well-being. uOttawa News Release (in French and English) | Altitude
