The Engagement subgroup, led by Victoria Watson, launched in summer of 2016 and aims to leverage tools available in the digital landscape to raise awareness of PIH’s unique approach to global health. If you're interested in social media, event promotion, and/or story telling, and want to get involved, please contact Victoria at v.watsn@gmail.com.

Fundraising
Partners In Health Canada is actively recruiting for a volunteer Fundraising subgroup leader. The successful candidate will have a strong network, great people skills, and a desire to generate resources that directly benefit the lives of individuals and communities PIH serves. If you’re familiar with peer-to-peer fundraising, work well in a team and feel confident organizing events and bringing new people into social justice work, this is a great opportunity to gain grassroots fundraising experience.


We hope to build a strong team with our Working Group and welcome your diversity and breadth of knowledge. As a community of colleagues, we envision a network where we can collaborate across subgroups and create opportunities for meaningful involvement. For more information about the subgroup leader roles, or about the Working Group in general, please contact Ashley Mogg (amogg@pih.org). We look forward to hearing from you!
