About the speaker

Shauna Sylvester - Social entrepreneur, facilitator, commentator, and educator

Shauna Sylvester is a Professor of Professional Practice and the Executive Director of Simon Fraser University’s Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue. Shauna is committed to excellence in public engagement and hosting difficult conversations. For over 30 years, she has served as a facilitator and host to hundreds of community and stake-holder dialogues. With the emergence of COVID-19, Shauna finds that her experience working in conflict zones is the most useful in helping to innovate and pivot the Centre’s work to online spaces. As the Chair of Tamarack, she is grateful for their mentorship in creating a thriving virtual work community and as Co-founder and first Executive Director of five dialogue initiatives – the SFU Public Square, Renewable Cities, Carbon Talks, Canada’s World and IMPACS - the Institute for Media, Policy and Civil Society, she has learned to work with ambiguity and create dynamic spaces for people to connect and build bridges across many sectors.
