Elaine Uppahuak-Prusky, a Senior Business Officer with the Government of Nunavut, has taken her career to the next level by completing the Senior Manager’s Hivuliqtikhanut Diploma. She is one of 15 GN employees to do so in 2016.
Accredited by Dalhousie University in Halifax, the one-year program was developed for employees at three levels: emerging managers, supervisors and senior managers.
Attendees learn from a variety of classroom and learning modules, building capacity for those pursuing careers with the Government of Nunavut. Yet, Uppahuak-Prusky points out that graduates not only learn new skills, they gain confidence in their roles.
