Join Sustainable Eastern Ontario for the last NCENN session of 2020! This has been a crazy year and we are closing out our networking sessions with a new feature: “Stories from the Sector.”
This event will focus on Leadership and include a panel discussion with three sustainability Executive Directors. Moderator Kristina Inrig, will lead a discussion and conversation with
-Mara Shaw, Executive Director, National Farmers Union
-Robb Barnes, Executive Director, Ecology Ottawa
-Barb King, Executive Director, Watersheds Canada
Join us for a conversation about leadership during a pandemic, leading in the environmental sector, and thriving as a nonprofit organization.
Barbara King, Executive Director, has worked with Watersheds Canada and its predecessor organization since 1999. Barbara has been integral in working with lake groups and associations on action-oriented stewardship programs into large multi-stakeholder programs that can be launched on a national level. Collaboration and partnerships are at the centre of her work and sharing and capacity building for groups that work with landowners to protect Canada’s Lakes and Rivers. Barbara has recently completed a Master’s in Non-Profit Management and Philanthropy at Carleton University. Barb has also worked in collaboration with regional partners to develop and led the development of key shoreline conservation and restoration initiatives that are fast becoming touchstones in Ontario and beyond.
Mara Shaw is the Executive Director of the National Farmers Union, Canada’s national progressive agricultural organization. She thoroughly enjoys the challenge of building effective non-profits. She believes deeply in the mission of her work and can’t help but work with enthusiasm. She believes we all need to be louder and hopes she can be part of making that happen. Mara holds degrees in Chemistry & Environmental Engineering Science, which are somewhat relevant, but only some days.
Robb Barnes is the Executive Director of Ecology Ottawa. Before joining Ecology Ottawa as a volunteer in 2013, Robb worked in the non-profit, public and private sectors. Robb brought advocacy experience to Ecology Ottawa from his time in politics and non-profits, and policy experience from his time as a management consultant working closely with various levels of government. Robb is passionate about environmental and animal welfare issues, community organizing and urban design. Robb holds a Masters in Public and International Affairs, where he focused on connections between ecological economics and urban sprawl.
Kristina Inrig is the Executive Director of Sustainable Eastern Ontario and creator of the popular Capacity Building Certificate Program from nonprofits. She has over a decade of fundraising and leadership experience in the ENGO sector and recently completed her Master’s in Philanthropy & Nonprofit Management.
