Cancelled: Conversations With Changemakers: Johnna Sparrow-Crawford
Mar 23, 2020
At the Conversations with Changemakers series, we look forward to bringing students together with inspirational leaders who share their experience, passion, and vision.
We have been closely monitoring and evaluating the situation around COVID-19 to ensure we are taking the necessary measures to protect the health and well-being of people on campus. Although there are no known cases on our campus or the UBC campus, we are wanting to stay proactive and always take preventative action.
In alignment with the best practices laid out by the Public Health Agency of Canada and BC Centre for Disease Control, we are cancelling non-essential activities and non-academic events, including the Conversations with Changemakers series
While we are disappointed that we will not be together for this event, we are excited to host many events in the future. We are hoping to reschedule this event for the fall and will notify all registrants if a date is confirmed.

Johnna is now ensuring the future economic development of First Nations peoples in her role as Aboriginal Relations Advisor at Aquilini Construction and Development.
