“Chanel and I worked together at Canadian Women’s Foundation for nearly 15 years. She is a gifted and effective facilitator, and an entertaining and thought-provoking speaker. She has deep knowledge of diversity, the challenges faced by women and girls, and what it takes to help them thrive. She brings her extensive experience in program design, grant making, evaluation, and leadership to all she does. And she is a pleasure to work with!
I highly recommend her.”
