Actions and Detail Panel
Workshop - Growing Your Cause
Fri, 1 December 2017, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM EST
We invite you to join Incubate for our Social Incubator Pilot Series. Stephanie Crocker of EcoSource is a master of organizational development, and will teach how to grow your organization by realizing the vital visions in the non-profit sector.
Life in a medium-sized non-profit presents an ever-changing landscape. Leadership requires adaptability, strong partnerships and creativity. Resourcing vital community programs depends on innovative collaborations and a network of engaged community members. Stephanie will be discussing some key ingredients to success in this landscape based on her 13 years of experience in the charitable sector for health and environmental causes.
- Stephanie Crocker, Executive Director, Ecosource
Stephanie has a passion for bringing people together for community action and holds a BSc degree in Anthropology. Stephanie has been working in the charitable sector for health and environmental causes for 13 years. Since September 2004, Stephanie has engaged community environmental organizations in Peel Region to help build capacity in communities for environmental change. In this role, she also developed a keen ability to hear youth concerns around environmental issues and co-founded the Peel Environmental Youth Alliance (PEYA), with a local secondary school student. Stephanie utilized this experience in youth engagement as well as consensus building with multistakeholder groups in projects increasing local and healthy foods in Ontario cafeterias.
As Executive Director at Ecosource (www.ecosource.ca) since 2013, Stephanie is thrilled to lead and support the community building and environmental responsibility generated by Ecosource programs in local food, community gardening and urban agriculture, waste reduction, youth leadership and adult environmental education in collaboration with government, business and ENGO partners.
