Melissa has been a regular volunteer with Cowichan Intercultural Society’s Multicultural Leadership Group (MLG) since 2011. Melissa highly values the Inclusive Leadership skills of “leaving out losing” and “listening with attention, intention and balance.” She applies these and other Inclusive Leadership skills weekly at MLG, at another group called Safe Youth Cowichan and in her work as an Early Childhood Educator. Melissa loves music, dance, and greening her community. Every summer she volunteers with the Green Team at the Islands Folk Festival. Melissa is a founding member of the Inclusive Leadership Co-operative.
“Inclusive Leadership is Multicultural Leadership and Multicultural Leadership is Inclusive Leadership.”
