Colleen Hanley (pn: she/her/elle)
I gratefully acknowledge I am guest on the traditional and ancestral lands of the K’omoks people. I retired a few years ago, Emeritus, from North Island College as Associate Director, North Island College International. I also held positions as counsellor, community developer and instructor during my tenure at North Island College.
I have had the privilege of working extensively for and with Indigenous peoples, and with students and business colleagues in South America, Europe, Africa and throughout the Asias. I have provided strategic planning, organizational development, intercultural engagement and research consulting services for non-profit organizations in the health, social services, and education sectors. I have served on national, provincial and community boards of directors, more recently with SIETAR BC, the BCCIC and with the Comox Valley Global Awareness Network.
Currently I am deeply involved, through both InnovativeCommunities.org Foundation and as a volunteer, with Nashipay Maasai Initiatives, a registered NGO in Tanzania.
