We are very pleased to announce Joy William will be joining the JABC team to manage our new Indigenous initiative.

Joy has extensive experience working in B.C.’s Indigenous communities. Most recently, Joy worked for Recycle BC to engage with Indigenous community leaders and work in partnership to develop programs and events to support recycling. She previously worked at the First Nations Technology Council overseeing operations, administrative management, and communications including coordinating in-community training and administration of the fnbc.info website.

Joy has traveled extensively throughout the province developing partnerships among Indigenous communities and successfully coordinating events and delivering workshops. Her existing knowledge of and network in Indigenous communities will aid JABC in developing new relationships and creating program opportunities.

Joy is Wet’suwet’en from Witset, BC (formerly Moricetown) and is in the Laksilyu clan (Small Frog). She holds an MSc International Business from the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, England and a Bachelor of Business Administration from Capilano University in North Vancouver, British Columbia.

She is very excited to be working directly with communities and looks forward to learning and growing along with the new Indigenous initiative at JABC. This Initiative is part of JABC’s Strategic Plan Bright Futures for all B.C.’s Youth that includes delivering more JABC programs into Indigenous communities across British Columbia.

JABC acknowledges the financial support provided for these programs from the Founders of JABC’s Indigenous Futures Circle: Deloitte LLP, Worth Allaye-Chan/Raymond James Ltd, Concert Properties, Leith Wheeler, Illahie Foundation, Jarislowky Fraser Partners Foundation, and Miller Thomson LLP.

Joy will join us at our downtown Vancouver offices starting July 2, 2019 and can be reached at Joy.William@jabc.org. Welcome Joy!
