Q & A Edmonton
Conversation with Doug Piquette and April Zhang
Edmonton was the first community in Canada to adopt the Connector Program when it was made available to Canadian cities, and it has been one of the busiest programs every year since. ERIEC, who houses the program, saw the benefits of the program for their organization and their clients from the very beginning. Not only is the program complementary to their services, it engages those in the community who are interested in giving back, and in concepts like Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, but do not have time for intensive programs like Mentorship. We sat down to discuss the program with ERIEC Executive Director, Doug Piquette, and Connector Program Coordinator, April Zhang.
