Their experiences

Here’s what current Green+Leaders have said about their experience:

Green+Leaders work in clinical and office settings.

Green+Leaders work in clinical and office settings.

“I have found it motivating to work in a group and I feel the reach has been extended even to those departments that don’t have a Green+Leader.” (Kim Steger, Quality Safety and Outcome Improvement)

“I really liked the kick-off meetings. They provided a lot of information, with an opportunity to discuss with others and get new ideas for our own projects and workplaces” (Erin Sine, Nutritional Services)

“I find people in the workplace want to make a difference they just need a voice and time away from their ‘day job’ to do it.” (Ryan Good, Health Emergency Management BC)

“It is truly tremendous to see the passion and interest in the Green+ Leaders programme. It has been inspirational.” (Todd Stevenson, Accounts Receivable)

“I love being part of Green+Leaders! …As a team, I feel as though we are really making a difference!” (Liana Nishi, eLearning)
