Event description

Description

Gabrielle Scrimshaw is a Gleitsman Fellow at the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard University. She will the Keynote Address at the Humanitarian Leaders of Tomorrow Conference, organized by A Better World and The Centre for Peace and Justice.

----------------

Because Gabrielle Scrimshaw is First Nations, she was born with some daunting numbers stacked against her. She was 8x more likely to commit suicide than the average Canadian, 3x more likely to be unemployed, be underfunded in her quest for education, and more likely to drop out of high school than finish it. In the face of these raw circumstances, she worked hard to follow her heart. She became the youngest Associate in one of Canada’s most competitive finance programs, was the first in her family to complete post-secondary education, travelled to 20 countries on five continents, worked with Heads of State and started a national organization for Aboriginal Professionals. In her presentation, Ms. Scrimshaw discusses how she did it, what motivates her, and why investing in Aboriginal leadership, education, and youth matters.
