Social World Podcast: In conversation with Monique Auffrey

About this event

She is also the Secretary General of the Commonwealth Organization of Social Workers and ( along with myself ) an Advisory Board Member of the Global Institute of Social Workers.http://www.thegisw.org .

As a published author, Monique’s work influences policy on social work, housing and homelessness. Carya https://caryacalgary.ca/ is a social profit agency dedicated to creating strong families and communities for generations. Since 1910, carya has been providing support to individuals, families, youth, and seniors – helping thousands of Calgarians every year to realize their potential and build thriving relationships.Previously, Monique was CEO of Discovery House, a social profit organization providing care to women and their children fleeing domestic violence. During her time at Discovery House, the organization was recognized as one of Canada’s Top 100 Charities, as well as one of Canada’s top three women’s shelters. Her creative leadership pushed Discovery House to think differently about their response to domestic violence, guiding the development of programs for children that help them recover from trauma and break the cycle of abuse.

Monique is also highly influential in the wider non-profit sector, sitting on the Alberta Family Violence Death Review Committee and participating in the National Housing Strategy Round Table in Ottawa.

Her most recent honour was to be awarded Advocate & Catalyst for Change by the Canadian Women’s Chamber of Commerce and the Universal Women’s Network as a Women of Inspiration 2020 winner.

We talk of national and global challenges as she has wide experience of international affairs even starting her career working with asylum seekers in the Netherlands.

She is an inspirational person to listen to and is someone that I really enjoyed talking to.
