For International Women's Day, we're partnering with DirectHer Network to celebrate women's achievements, raise awareness against bias and, and take action for equality.
To celebrate, we have partnered with ten remarkable women who are breaking the barriers of change and empowering more female participation in the boardroom.
Board Governor, U of A, Board Trustee, Alberta Mental Health Foundation, and Director, Bow Valley Primary Care Network.
Charlene is a board director, angel investor and avid volunteer who believes in giving back to the communities in which we live, work and play. She is currently on the Boards of the University of Alberta, the AB Mental Health Foundation, the Automobile Insurance Rate Board, and the Bow Valley Primary Care Network and volunteers in many ways. When not on Zoom, you will find Charlene enjoying the mountains in which she lives!
I Choose to Challenge:
The status quo for mental health in Alberta and beyond. Mental health should be resourced and considered equal to physical health.
For the Future I Hope:
That our medical system and each of us as individuals knows that mental health is equally as important as physical health. For a future where mental health has no stigma attached and where mental health supports and services are easily accessible by everyone.
