It is an honour to congratulate
Tabitha Phiri for winning a Diversity Award for her passion
to foster diversity and inclusion in Alberta. She is an outstanding citizen who has committed the
last decade of her life to making
Alberta a welcoming province for all.
Over the last six years, Phiri has coordinated
three research projects in the areas of economic security, domestic violence,
and immigrant settlement programs. She has also worked as the program coordinator
of Domestic Violence and Research for the Central Alberta Immigrant Women’s Association
Phiri is a
passionate advocate for marginalized minority groups and believes that
employers, community service providers, elected
leaders, and educators can meaningfully effect change in the lives of
immigrants who are working hard to start a new life in central Alberta.
I would like to congratulate Tabitha Phiri on receiving this award and look
forward to working with her in the future.
