Taryn Lipschitz, HBA '09, and Sharon Castelino, MBA '12, Toronto Chapter Co-Presidents
Ivey alumni can be found in leadership positions throughout the GTA. Ivey alumni have a long history of school pride and a desire to think Ivey first in everything that they do, and nowhere is that more true than in the GTA.
The GTA is home to nearly 11,000 Ivey alumni, making up a large portion of Ivey's global community. The Toronto Chapter of the Ivey Alumni Network (IANT) is a primary vehicle for driving alumni engagement across all ages and career spectrums. The goal of the IANT is to help connect Ivey alumni across the GTA; both with the School and with their fellow alumni.
The Toronto Chapter typically hosts 10 to 14 events per year, featuring a mix of panel discussions on trending topics, career development seminars, community service events, and social gatherings. Recent highlights include industry discussions (finance, technology, CPG, alternative assets, managing millennials), the #FinTech Forum, Ivey-style case studies, Scotch Tasting, and the Women in Leadership Forum.
We hope you'll engage with us this year, and encourage you to continue to think Ivey first - when hiring, doing business, and with the gift of your time or resources.
