Laura was a writer for the development team at the Canadian Women’s Foundation. In another life she got a PhD in English literature and knew many obscure things about the eighteenth century. Currently, she loves to read, talk, think, and write. She plays soccer and runs, though not as quickly as she used to.
In the fall, some colleagues and I attended a panel hosted by TD’s Diversity & Inclusion Centre of Excellence, chaired by TD’s Monique Bateman, Special Advisor, Aboriginal Relations. There, we listened to three inspiring Chiefs talk about leadership.
Right away I was struck by how—unlike during the leaders’ debates aired during the countdown to our federal election—the panelists did not once interrupt each other. They each waited patiently for the moderator’s questions and answered in turn, when asked. Their answers were smart, thoughtful, and carefully considered.
