lead award badge Telfer Executive Programs was ranked fifth in their category for “Custom Content Programming with Emphasis on Leadership / Organizational Development" in recognition of their Justice Canada Executive Leadership Program which engaged leaders of the organization in the transformation process that is underway in the department.  

The curriculum for this custom program was designed to meet the specific context of the Canadian Federal Government, to meet the unique organizational requirements of the Department of Justice and to address the individual needs of each participant. Dr. Ingrid Richter, Executive in Residence at Telfer Executive Programs, was the lead designer and facilitator for the program which also profiled an inter-disciplinary team of Telfer faculty and associates as well as executives from the Department of Justice.

“We are particularly pleased that this award is very aligned with our mission and core focus: delivering custom programs that focus on leadership and organization development” said Glen Orsak, Executive Programs Director at the Telfer Centre for Executive Leadership.
