Race Forward

Race Forward is a career preparation program for Ryerson's Black undergraduate students that launched in Summer 2021. The program provides professional development training, networking opportunities, and mentors to help Black students make informed career choices and launch their careers. The initiative is organized by Ryerson Career and Co-op Centre and Tri-Mentoring Program. 

The 2022 program will take place from May to August and will be open to 40 students who are interested in discussing their identity, understanding their strengths, and meeting Black professionals from a variety of industries. Students must be willing to commit to five workshops and maintain a relationship with a career mentor over the summer. 

Applications for the 2022 program are open from January 10, 2022 to February 4, 2022. Apply today:, external link. Check out the FAQ sheet for answers to common questions:, external link
