The Community Engagement team is pleased to announce that Stephanie Massot will be joining us as our new Community Engagement Advisor on Monday, November 9, 2020.

A creative and collaborative connector with more than 10 years of experience leading health initiatives across non-profits and health care organizations, Stephanie enjoys engaging communities to improve their well-being and create a higher quality and sustainable health system. A couple of her experiences include launching Dementia-Friendly Cities in Toronto and more recently, scaling What Matters to You? from a one-day event to a year-round initiative.
Stephanie has a Master of Public Health in Health Promotion. She has also completed training in IAP2 Public Participation, San’yas Indigenous Cultural Safety, Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Collaboratives Model, OCAD University’s Systemic Design: Social Systems, Liberating Structures, IDEO University’s design thinking and is a graduate from the BC Patient Safety Quality Council Quality Academy.
Stephanie’s a settler whose ancestry is traced back to France and Ireland and she’s recently relocated to the ancestral, traditional and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) nation known as Richmond, where she grew up. Do you have an adventurous hike, delectable vegetarian meal or social justice passion to share? Stephanie would love to hear about it et si vous désirez partager en français, elle serait ravie!
Please join us in giving Stephanie a big CEAN welcome as she begins her new role.
