I love documentaries. This morning, I went to see a fantastic documentary called Pink Ribbons, Inc., which exposes the truths behind the pink ribbon breast cancer campaigns. I should also mention that I had previously worked with one of the writers Nancy Guerin back when I interned for the children's television show Mystery Hunters. From a business perspective, the film did a great job of showing the effects of capitalism, globalization, CSR, and bottom line demands.
When it comes to having a global perspective, The Globe and Mail reported that university leaders want more Canadians to study abroad. In about six days, I should find out if I've been accepted for the Russia Campus Abroad program for P7. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
In the meantime, I am happy to report that my team has been accepted for the P8 Supervised Consulting Field Project. Even though the project isn't until July, the deadline to have our teams accepted is February 17, so I'm glad that we were able to comply with the criteria (two Canadian citizens and two non-Canadians, multicultural, and diversified academic and professional backgrounds) and be in agreement regarding the type of project we'd like to work on (Marketing). Too bad we're not quite at P8 yet!
