From telling impactful stories in 140 characters, developing strategic communication plans, or supporting individuals at all levels to better understand how to leverage the digital world, Jelena Lazarević is a rising leader. She uses her deep passion and understanding of digital tools to create meaningful change across communities. Currently, Jelena helps manage all digital communications and design for CivicAction and the CivicAction Leadership Foundation – two organizations that take a cross-sectoral collaborative approach to solve our region’s most complex issues. As a graduate of the Master of Professional Communication program at Ryerson University, Jelena became fascinated with all things digital and with finding ways diverse people can use the digital sphere to connect with those around them.
Over the past 5 years she has developed her passion for global development, communication, and the arts through working with The University Students’ Council of Western University, UNICEF-at-Western, and helping manage a student-run elections blog. Today, as a young communications professional, graphic designer, and photographer, she continues to find ways to contribute her strong digital media and graphic design skills to a variety of causes. When she’s not tweeting away, you’ll find her traveling, behind the camera, or indulging in good food.
