Members of the community are gathering to discuss strategies to foster inclusion and performance for women and other underrepresented groups at the Uda Dune Baiyoh House of Ancestors Conference Center this Friday.
The panel, featuring Tim Bennett, Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters Prince George, Felicia Magee, Director of Business Development at Northern Development Initiative Trust, Chief Clayton Pountney of the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation and Shoba Sharma, Executive Director, Central Interior Native Health Society, will be moderated by Minerva BC CEO Tina Strehlke.
“Inclusive leadership is all about how we can honour the differences as well as the commonalities that exist within a community or group,” said Tina Strehlke. “I think conversations like the one taking place this Friday can help organizations consider the best ways to adopt more inclusive leadership styles and reap the benefits from it.”
Attendees will also get an exclusive sneak peek at Minerva BC’s annual Scorecard. The Scorecard assesses representation of women and Indigenous peoples on corporate boards and in senior executive leadership, with a focus on BC-based companies. The Scorecard will then be released to the public later in October.
