COVID-19: Why investing in youth will future-proof the economy
More than one in six young people are out of work because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Tackling youth unemployment is crucial to countries’ economic recovery.
My unwavering desire to create meaningful positive impact and drive climate action has guided my professional and volunteer work. Currently, I am a Sustainability Consultant at the Delphi Group, helping organizations transition towards a low-carbon economy. Previously, I was Manager, Sustainable Investing at BentallGreenOak, one of the largest global real estate investment management advisors. At BentallGreenOak, I managed environmental social and governance (ESG) risks and disclosures across the company’s real estate portfolio. I draw from my past experience as a sustainability professional in the non-profit (Green Economy Canada, Sustainable Waterloo Region), public (Environment Canada), and private sectors (Microsoft Canada). I hold a Bachelors of Environment and Business from the University of Waterloo. I was previously recognized as one of Canada’s Top 30 Under 30 Sustainability Leaders and Top 25 Under 25 Environmentalists.
