Laurel Cowan - Board Member
Laurel is a planner and engagement specialist with a passion for inclusive communities. She aims to bring an intersectional lens to planning and engagement to create more equitable plans and policies. Her goal is to bring more diverse voices to the table to recognize a wider range of needs and interests, particularly vulnerable and historically marginalized groups.
As a settler of Scottish & Irish descent, Laurel is humbled to live and work on the traditional, unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. She is on a continual journey of learning to become a strong ally for women, people of colour, people with disabilities, Indigenous communities, and others who face additional barriers to civic participation and leadership. She is thrilled to join the WTC team and support such an amazing network of women in Vancouver and beyond!
