Dr. Erin Huner is the Director of Culture and Inclusion at Ivey Business School, where she leads EDI programming and community engagement. As a settler to Canada, Erin approaches the work of building equitable and inclusive culture as a listener. She practices listening as a way to better understand her own privilege and how she might use her privilege to open spaces for equity deserving individuals to speak and rebuild, those spaces, systems, and policies where they have been historically marginalized. She also approaches this work through her lived experience of being the mother of a child who is neurodiverse. Erin has expertise in Implementation Science and Evaluation, and has designed and implemented research and programming focused on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) and Gender-Based-Violence (GBV); student skill acquisition; and student mental health and wellbeing.

Hi, I’m Chelsea. I used to be the Operations Manager for NBS. Now, I just focus on my favourite part of that job – the writing! I also run a social enterprise, called Creating Me, dedicated to strengthening maternal and family well-being. I know first-hand how difficult it can be to balance career goals, impact, and one’s own well-being. When I’m not working on my own impact goals, I offer executive coaching and writing support, to help researchers and change-makers grow their impact and well-being. (creatingme.ca/sustainability) But truthfully, the most important hat I wear is the one that says ‘mom.’ It’s my great honour to guide my kids – age 7, 7, and 9 – as they discover themselves and find their place in the world.
