GBWC Dinner Series: Women in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Posted on:

Our first Dinner Series event was organized in March, 2017 and we were delighted to welcome Alannah Cervenko and Lindsay McIvor, two extraordinary business leaders in the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainability sectors. Alannah is the Leader in Community Investment and Partnerships at Teck Resources. Lindsay is the Principal Consultant at Compass Sustainability Services.

Alannah and Lindsay shared the stories of their career trajectories, experiences through the SFU MBA program and advice on how to succeed after graduation. Lindsay spoke about how companies focus on corporate responsibility and think creatively and strategically in their approach to health, safety, environment, and community (HSEC) risks and opportunities. Alannah discussed how she strategically promotes the advancement of Teck Resource’s business and community goals at her work.

Dinner at Nuba was in a mediterranean feast style and added an amazing ambience to the night.  The event was an absolute success and the professionals were looking forward to attending another event with the GBWC in the future.
