Change Lab gives you a skill set that is very applicable to a variety of situations. For example, building a certain level of business acumen, expanding your perspectives, and understanding how to work well within a group dynamic. It’s much more fun than sitting in a classroom, and it opens your eyes up to a lot of cool projects that are happening in Vancouver. It’s a ton of work, prepare to work hard, but you’ll get a lot out of the experience.
The most valuable things I experienced during Change Lab were critical thinking and interdisciplinary group learning. It was really interesting to have people with a variety of perspectives to challenge each other’s thoughts. I think having those kinds of challenging discussions is really beneficial for personal, academic, and professional growth.
