Vancouver Pride Welcomes Board Members

We are pleased to welcome Abdollah Fooladkhai to our board of directors.

 

“As a newcomer, coming from human resource management background, I decided to fit myself into the society by being actively engaged in the LGBTQ2s+ community and involved in different activities, including voluntary work at local community and organizations.

 

Being elected as a new board member at Vancouver Pride Society, will not only open new doors to new opportunities for me (for which I will always be grateful) but will also be a platform through which I can demonstrate and practice my leadership skills, contributing to my community both responsibly and ethically.

 

I also would like to express my appreciation for the opportunities that I was given in the United Arab Emirates, which truly equipped me with necessary skills for my new role.

 

Back then, I was fortunate enough to gain hands-on experiences and improve on my knowledge, skills and abilities in different areas. I owe this all to the culturally diversified environment of the UAE and considerable level of tolerance among the people of the country, which taught me life lessons of openness, kindness and importance of giving back.” – Abdollah Fooladkhai

 

Welcome Abdollah!

 

We would like to congratulate Charmaine de Silva (Co-Chair), Darius Maze (Treasurer), Catherine Jenkins (Director at Large), and Danny Ramadan (Director at Large) on their re-elections.

 

We would also like to express our appreciation for Alan Jernigan’s service. Thank-you for everything Alan, we will miss you!
