Governance & Strategy, she/her
Through a collaborative, strategic approach, Rola helps organizations find solutions to pressing governance, management and capacity development issues.
These include projects that organizations want to implement, but do not currently have the capacity to do so.
In her role as Executive Director of the First Nations Adult Education School Council, Rola helped support the creation of adult education centers in Indigenous communities across Quebec. She established and maintained partnerships with federal and provincial governments and Indigenous groups. Under her leadership they were able to negotiate new funding agreements, and consequently increased the budget from $2.2 million to $6.4 million, increased the number of centers from 3 to 9 and created business services, which generated $140,000 in the first year.
