Description

Join a small group of peers and an experienced mentor to chat about leadership and change over lunch.

The conversation will start with a short presentation from a mentor, sharing ‘3 good ideas’, ‘the best advice I ever received’ or ‘what-I-wish-I-knew-then’. Come prepared to ask questions, discuss your ideas and share your leadership challenges and successes.

December's Mentor: Lynn Zimmer, Executive Director at YWCA Peterborough Haliburton

Lynn Zimmer has been Executive Director of the YWCA Peterborough Haliburton for 33 years. She has also been a Board member and Board Chair of the Peterborough Community Police Service. Lynn has a B.A. in Communication Arts from University of Montreal, and in 2002 she received her Masters in Management for the Voluntary Sector from McGill University.

Lynn began her work career as a women’s page reporter for the Peterborough Examiner in 1969. She then moved to Toronto, where she tried law school for a year. Lynn was one of the founders and first staff of Interval House, Toronto, Canada’s first shelter for abused women and she has been engaged in the work of preventing violence against women for over 44 years. Her most recent challenge was the YWCA’s very successful Safe Haven Campaign and construction project to create a new accessible, green, and healing Crossroads Shelter for women and children fleeing abuse. The new YWCA Strategic Plan is directed toward the Vision: To See All Women and Children Thriving. Lynn has had a lively interest in philanthropy ever since she wrote her first direct mail appeal and lots of money from kind strangers arrived in the mail.
