Nicki Ward joined the European Green Movement as a teenager in the early 1970's. This focused heavily on conservation (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) and a blended approach to problem solving.
In Europe, this meant working within existing economic infrastructures to effect change. Nicki's studies in advanced, economics, government & politics, and mathematics reinforced this foundation. That meaningful results must be environmentally, economically, and politically sustainable.
Capitalizing on a gift for languages, Nicki worked and traveled extensively throughout Europe. This was both before and after the creation of the E.U. This provided first hand experience of the positives (and negatives) of the "European Common Market".
Ms. Ward brought her technical and business skills to North America working in new product development and communication across the U.S. and then immigrating to Canada and becoming a citizen.
While raising a family, she served as a consultant in science and technology sectors before accepting a long term assignment in senior management with a major financial services company.
This work required extensive coordination between public and private sector institutions, regulatory bodies and the business community.
In addition to private sector board experience, Nicki has also served on volunteer boards of public sector, charitable and institutional organisations.
Nicki's volunteer engagement spans several decades and has intersected every level of Canadian Government.
Nicki's work continues to include environmental issues and extends substantially into the areas of LGBTQ, Disability, Human Rights and Community.
