    Œuvrant au sein d’un gouvernement municipal depuis plus de 12 ans, Nicole a appuyé l’élaboration d’initiatives en participation publique (P2) pour une multitude de sujets ayant une incidence directe sur les résidents, et a joué le rôle d’animatrice et de conseillère stratégique, ce faisant dans les deux langues officielles du Canada et du Nouveau-Brunswick, le français et l’anglais.

    Nicole s’est jointe à l’AIP2-Canada en 2017, et cette même année a suivi le cours des Fondements pendant le tout premier Symposium des compétences. Elle a été profondément inspirée à promouvoir les concepts de la P2 inclusive et juste pour tous. Elle a été nommée membre-associé du conseil d’administration (C.A.) en 2017-2018, puis élue en 2019 pour un mandat de trois ans. Dans ce rôle, elle agit à titre d’agente de liaison au nom du C.A. en ce qui a trait au portfolio du bilinguisme de l’AIP2-Canada — un objectif stratégique de l’organisme.

    Ses antécédents professionnels en matière de traduction, de prestation de services bilingues, de communications, d'engagement des employés et de participation publique lui accordent une perspective unique pour tisser les liens entre divers groupes linguistiques et culturels pour atteindre un but collectif.

    Vous pouvez joindre Nicole par courriel à l’adresse nicoleIAP2atl@gmail.com.

    While working in municipal government for 12+ years, Nicole has assisted in developing public participation initiatives for a wide range of topics with direct impact on residents, as well as acted as facilitator and strategic advisor, all the while accomplishing this in Canada and New Brunswick’s official languages, English and French.

    Nicole joined IAP2-Canada in 2017, and attended the first Skills Symposium where she took the Foundations course, and was profoundly inspired to promote the concepts of fair and equitable P2 for all. She became a deputy board member for the 2017-2018 year, and was elected for a three-year mandate in 2019. She is currently the Board liaison for the bilingualism portfolio of IAP2-Canada, a strategic objective of the organization.

    Her professional background in translations, bilingual service delivery, communications, employee engagement and public participation provides her with a unique perspective in connecting linguistic and cultural groups to a common community goal.

    She can be reached by email at nicoleIAP2atl@gmail.com.
