Whether this recent heat wave means lying on a beach or curling under an air conditioner with a good book, it’s a great opportunity to boost your leadership learning. Check out Minerva BC’s staff picks for the summer.
In the Spring of 2017, Minerva BC received a compelling Learning to Lead™ application from a high school student in Kamloops. Autumn Walkem, in Grade 11 at the time, expressed a deep interest in developing her confidence, using her voice, and learning about her own potential for leadership. There was a personal stake for Autumn, who wanted to better represent her indigenous community and “be a voice to protect the earth”.
In this edition of Donor Spotlight, we’d like to introduce Ann Naymie. Ann was looking to fund a Learning to Lead™ scholarship for a recipient that she felt would most positively benefit from the experience, someone that would go on to truly make a difference in the world. We matched Ann to Autumn Walkem, and the connection was instantaneous.
Spring Fling brought Women Leading the Way™ alumnae together to reconnect over wine and new wear.
In this edition of Donor Spotlight, we’d like to introduce a remarkable individual, Chad Bentley. Chad will be competing in the Epic 5 Ultra Triathalon Challenge, an incredible adventure that will take him to Hawaii to compete in five Ironman competitions in just five days(!)
We are pleased to announce former Combining Our Strength™ Director, Lisa Tallio, recently received the BC Community Achievement Award. Congratulations Lisa on this well-deserved recognition.
