As a communication consultant and social activist, I have shared the frustrations and rewards of working with good people to advance economic and social rights for everyone.
Now I want to do more to create a Canada in which everyone is proud and prosperous. As a communications manager and consultant, I have facilitated dialogue and decision making with diverse groups of people. I have been able to help create understanding, awareness and consensus where differences and disagreements prevailed before.
In my community I have been a promoter of community economic development and particularly of social enterprise. I have been on the Board of of Inner City Renovation for over a decade, which advocates for social enterprise and worker ownership through high quality building renovation. www.innercityrenovation.ca
Until recently I was the Executive Director of the Social Planning Council of Winnipeg. The Council has been a defender of the rights of low income residents of the City for over 90 years. Today we face huge challenges in the struggle to eliminate poverty and social exclusion.
I welcome comments and suggestions on what I am doing.
