By Cathryn Oliver, MSc

Sujaykumar (Sujay) Vardhmane, Program Coordinator, Human Resources Diploma Programs

I am pleased to advise that Sujaykumar (Sujay) Vardhmane will assume the role of program coordinator for the Human Resources Diploma Programs, effective January 2021.

Sujay joined the PSB faculty in 2020, teaching in the HR Diploma and Grad Certificate programs. He has also been actively involved in other PSB initiatives including organizing industry speaker series for HR students, volunteering to coach student competitions and generously offering to lead virtual yoga practice for his colleagues to combat stress and nurture wellness during the pandemic. 

Prior to Sheridan, Sujay gained teaching experience and curriculum development at several other secondary institutions including University of Toronto and Ryerson University and has been a member of several educational advisory committees.

Sujay’s industry experience is extensive, notably as a senior manager with Scotiabank. He has worked with the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion (CCDI), in addition to having many other HR roles in Canada and internationally. Sujay maintains strong industry relationships and is frequently asked to present at a variety of conferences.

Sujay holds a Bachelor of Commerce Degree, a Masters in Personnel Management, as well as a Human Resources Management Post Graduate Diploma. He is a Certified Human Resources Leader, a designation that’s conferred by the Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA). He is currently pursuing his PhD from Symbiosis International (Deemed University).

Please join me in welcoming Sujay to his new role as program coordinator.

Please also join me in thanking John Hardisty and Maureen Spiteri for their roles as joint program coordinators for the diploma program the past few terms. Their commitment  to student success and desire to support their faculty colleagues has been greatly appreciated.
