2018 Graduation Highlights
On November 29th, 2018...
On November 29th 2018, CICR Board Members, TPN Graduates, Trainers, Members and Staff along with their families and friends gathered for the annual graduation ceremony. More than 50 peacebuilders received certificates and celebrated the completion of their TPN journey.
The graduation ceremony also included an inspirational speech by special guest and President of the Rideau Institute, Peggy Mason. Mason has worked in peace & security since 1989. Her contributions to the field include: serving as Canada’s Ambassador for Disarmerment with the United Nations, the development of ground-breaking principles and exercises with NATO on disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of former fighters in international settings. In addition to Peggy Mason's speech, we also celebrated our surprise Service Award recipient for her dedication to CICR throughout the last few years.
We hope those who attended enjoyed themselves! If you would like to see more photos from the evening, they are posted to our Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/CICRICRC/photos/?tab=album&album_id=2414250341938472
