Managing Director, Corporate Social Responsibility and Community Investment
Alberta Treasury Branch
Whether working in public affairs, corporate social responsibility (CSR) or community investment, Sandra’s career has been connected and energized by the notion that meaningful and enduring social investment happens only when many aspects come together: creativity, imagination, inspiration, and a great listener’s instinct for what’s important to an organization and its many audiences.
This idea has guided her work in both the public and private sector and currently, ATB Financial, where she created the first CSR framework for the largest Alberta-based financial institution.
She was asked by the World Health Organization to develop multi-culturally appropriate curricula for health professionals and was part of their global team where she taught courses in Asia, Europe, South America and the Middle East.
She is a member of the Mayor’s Task Force to Eliminate Poverty in Edmonton, on the board for the Canadian Centre for CSR (CCCSR) and Institute for Sexual Health Minority Studies and Services at the University of Alberta, and on the board of the Sorrentino’s Compassion House Foundation.
