What is the board?

As a non-profit corporation, part of the governance structure consists of a board. The board is responsible for approving and curating the bylaws of the organization.

The board collaborates with the executive, which has the primary responsibility for the ongoing activities of the group.

Who is on the board?

The current board was elected at the December 5th, 2017 planning meeting and includes:

Maya Dhanjal (Co-Chair of Board)

Maya is a sustainability consultant, working with organizations to develop climate change solutions at the lowest cost. She has over 3 years’ work experience, most recently at a non-profit analyzing climate policy action such as the North American carbon markets. Maya received her Bachelor of Environmental Studies as well as a Diploma in Environmental Assessment from the University of Waterloo in June 2017. She is passionate about climate justice and believes in the mobilization of like-minded individuals to champion environmental and social stewardship.

Liza Paul (Treasurer)

I believe that that entrepreneurial leaders have an obligation to lead on sustainability and social impact. I bring my innate curiosity to learn and develop new perspectives, subject training as an engineer and attention to detail to support leadership in the financial life of the group while managing the required financial needs. There is nothing more powerful than collective consciousness and action.
