Sara Baptiste-Brown has worked around the world in the non-profit, private and social enterprise sectors, bringing a balance of empathy, objectivity and critical analysis to social impact initiatives. A JMSB graduate, she is now immersed in the world of experiential learning in her role as Program Coordinator at the Institute for Cooperative Education.
Steering Committee members were originally recruited in Fall 2019 through this open call for applicants.
They were selected by Anne Whitelaw (Provost and VP Academic), Nadia Bhuiyan (VP Partnerships and Experiential Learning), Charmaine Lyn (Interim Director of SHIFT), and a representative of the donor using these guidelines.
We are grateful that most Steering Committee members agreed to extend their mandate and provide SHIFT with continued support and guidance throughout our second year of operations. A supplementary open call for applications took place in Fall 2020 and resulted in three additional members joining the committee.
