President, GLOBE Series

The GLOBE Forum is THE biennial event that connects, educates and inspires widely diverse sustainability and climate focused stakeholder groups from across Canada and beyond, to advance partnerships, practices and solutions that support the transition to a net-zero, equitable economy. With attendance complications over the past two years due to the pandemic, Elizabeth delivered the first ever hybrid (in-person and online) and also completely sold-out GLOBE Forum in March of 2022, with a combined 2,000+ attendees, 20% of whom were C-suite level executives across various sectors, levels of government, and NGO’s. Participants were given the space to learn, discuss and ultimately move the needle on key topics such as the just transition, gender equality, finance and investment, local solutions to net zero, and policy, regulation and corporate governance. Elizabeth has grown the organization’s impact and influence by convening 12,000+ members of the climate and sustainability community across 30+ events for leading organizations like UNEP FI, WCEF, and many others.
