As Communications and Alumni Engagement Coordinator, Emily Mininger assists the CivicAction Leadership Foundation team with a variety of communications needs such as creating and executing communications and social media campaigns, implementing stakeholder engagement strategies, supporting coordination of Leadership Foundation events, creating and distributing the monthly ELN newsletter and maintaining the Leadership Foundation website.
Emily found her passion for not-for-profit communications through volunteering, with her most notable volunteer role as founder and facilitator of KW Peace, a grassroots group dedicated to creating networking opportunities for peace and justice groups in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. Through this experience she experienced the power of connecting diverse groups with similar interests and is excited to continue this work with CivicAction.
Prior to moving to Toronto, Emily served as the undergraduate academic advisor in the psychology department at the University of Waterloo, helping students navigate their academic career and developing strategies to communicate important information about academic opportunities and requirements. Wanting to switch gears and dive deeper into communications, she left the university to complete a communications post-grad program in September 2017.
Emily earned her Honours BA in Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Waterloo and is a candidate for the post graduate certificate in Public Relations and Corporate Communications at Centennial College.
