Royal Roads Bachelor of Business Administration student, Mabel Marin, has been selected as a delegate to the 2016 Leading Change conference in Vancouver this week. Mabel will be one of 150 emerging environmental leaders meeting to explore “new models and economies shaping the sustainability space,” according to the conference organizers.

Leading Change is an organization of young environmental and sustainability professionals committed to finding solutions to the social, environmental and economic issues confronting us today. Its annual conference is “focused on building the next generation of corporate leaders, policy thinkers, entrepreneurs and community actors” (leadingchangecanada.com).

Marin believes that initiatives like Leading Change make a critical contribution toward sustainability. “Participating of Leading Change 2016 is the first step toward a more positive future,” said Marin.  “Whatever is created today will matter tomorrow. I am happy to be able to contribute to a sustainable future.”

According to BBA Program Head, Todd Thexton, “Building leadership in sustainability and business is a core objective of the BBA program.  We’re proud that our program is attracting and supporting students like Mabel, who are distinguishing themselves as up-coming sustainability leaders in the business world.”

The Leading Change conference is associated with the GLOBE 2016 Leadership Summit for Sustainable Business.  Six other BBA students will be joining Mabel for the GLOBE conference.
