McGill Interns

Through our partnership with McGill University we are proud to work with the McGill Mastercard Foundation Transitions Project, welcoming our exceptional interns to the team for 2022

Liz Thomas is a double major graduate in Finance and International Business from Desautels Faculty of Management, McGill University, and an engaged McGill Mastercard Foundation Alumnus. Her keen interest in the private sector and business management has led her to seize opportunities with the Royal Bank of Canada as a Business Operations Intern. She has worked as a Strategy and Communications Analyst with the McGill Mastercard Foundation Transitions Project.

Liz is passionate about African youth involvement in business, and this has led her to take up the opportunity to intern with the Canada-Africa Chamber of Business(CACB) as a Strategy Execution and Analyst Intern for the McGill-CACB partnership.

Liz excels in a team environment and also delivers exceptionally working alone. Personal attributes of accountability, responsibility and goal orientation make her an asset in any professional business setting.

 Doreen Kiprono is a recent graduate from the Life Science program at McGill University and a MasterCard Foundation alumnus. Emerging African trade markets, consulting and the technology industry are special areas of interest for her, and she has explored these interests during her secondary and tertiary education. Working as a program manager intern with CACB this summer, she hopes to amplify the voice of youth and women in Africa and Canada and opportunities that will create stronger ties between these various entities.
