CREATING AWARENESS

Making Change

A social entrepreneur before most people had ever heard the term, Lisa is focused on supporting education here in Canada and around the world in impoverished and remote communities. She champions changemakers who show initiative to improve their communities, offering resources rather than solutions. Always trying to do things differently, Lisa early on developed a passion for building awareness surrounding the impact of colonialism on the relationship between Canada and Indigenous peoples. None of her work is possible without first building trusted relationships, a focus that has enabled Lisa to become a tour-de-force in helping others.

Lisa is currently working on a feature film in development highlighting racism against Indigenous women.

EQUINOX AWARENESS ALLIANCE

Longstanding shared misinformation and unconscious bias has led to conflict, racism, and inequity between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous populations. This injustice motivated Lisa to create the national public awareness campaign, Equinox. Equinox is striving to change this long-standing paradigm through increased education, awareness and engagement.
