Diane has worked and volunteered for a number of years in the non profit sector in Calgary. Her work has focused on supporting women to achieve social equity and personal well being.
Her most recent work has been as a funder associated with a large community fundraising organization. Her work involves evaluating and monitoring programs as well as understanding the social needs of Calgary, the city she has lived in her whole life, and working to find solutions for the most pressing of social issues.
She is really interested in expanding her knowledge in international development and has supported Inspire Africa since it began. She travelled to Rwanda on the 2012 trip and got a first hand look at the exciting projects that are making a difference in the lives of orphans and widows who are re-building their lives.
