Bio:
Actua is a national charitable organization that engages Canadian youth in inspiring and innovative science and technology experiences. Through camps, classroom workshops, clubs, and community outreach, our programs reach a quarter of a million youth annually. Over the past decade, I have led the development of Actua’s national barrier-breaking programs, which engage Aboriginal youth, girls and young women, youth living in rural and remote communities and other at-risk youth. Committed to helping improve youth access to education, I have served on the boards of several local, national and international groups that are committed to furthering educational opportunities for young people including the Girls Action Foundation, the International Network of Women Engineers and Scientists, and the Science and Technology Awareness Network.
