Catherine Gorospe
Talent Management & Development Specialist - Samsung Electronics Canada

I graduated from the University of Toronto in 2013 with a Major in Psychology and started working right away at an Insurance company. After a few months, I realized I wanted to continue my studies so I began a post-graduate program at Sheridan College, specializing in Human Resources Management.

My program at Sheridan led me to a 4-month co-op position at Samsung, and since then I’ve gained experience in varying areas of HR, including Recruitment, Benefits & Compensation, and Training & Development. Currently, I am the Talent Management & Development Specialist, where I am responsible for all things L&D and employee engagement. Most recently, I had the great pleasure to travel to Korea for a week-long Samsung Global L&D Specialist training program, which was an amazing experience both culturally and intellectually.

When I’m not at work you can likely find me at the gym. I am passionate about fitness and love feeling strong and healthy! I tend to take my passion of fitness and body building to an extreme since I am also an OPA Bikini Competitor.

This is my first year with Forward Together, and I’m extremely excited to be working with an awesome group of ladies to organize an amazing event!
