Speaker Bio
I have 20 plus years of experience and is an acknowledged thought Leader having represented for years, the affordable housing sector internationally and locally in the media. See The Agenda TV show in early 2020: https://www.tvo.org/video/affordable-housing-and-the-toronto-election and in partnership initiatives with forums such as the Toronto Board of Trade. https://www.toronto.com/opinion-story/10035268-pandemic-means-workforce-housing-needed-more-than-ever-in-toronto/) I am currently a member of the Black North Initiative - a forum of key business and community leaders to address anti-black racism in Toronto. Recently, as part of the Black North’s Housing Committee, we made a successful case to the Region of Peel to invest $50M to an affordable housing bridge program for black families. As GM, Peel Housing 2010 – 2017, I was a member of the Human Services Leadership Team that earned a KPMG award for integrated service delivery of housing, social assistance, employment & child care.
