Member Testimonials

“It has been an absolute pleasure to sit on the EWO Awards and Recognition committee over the past four years and to have been able to serve as a co-chair for this committee over the past two years. This experience has provided me with so many incredible opportunities, from building collaborative relationships with partners from across various institutions, to developing further leadership skills, and most importantly, to recognizing and honouring incredible students who have contributed to our communities. I would highly encourage anyone considering joining a committee to explore opportunities with EWO.”

“Being a member of EWO has helped me learn from colleagues through amazing PD sessions, networking sessions, and conferences. I have also had the opportunity to get involved as a board member and through multiple committees, which has allowed me to contribute to the direction of EWO and the industry.
