Workplace Ambassador spotlight

Stephanie and James have been GenNext Ambassadors at GDLS-Canada since 2018. These two DoGooders have worked hard to engage their coworkers in GenNext, even going as far as personally inviting every new employee to join. They hosted two product drives annually and have recruited 12 participants for the GenNextLevel giving program. Stephanie and James actively engage their colleagues in volunteer activities like preparing and serving breakfast at LUSO’s Books & Breakfast program. They even built an incredible team of 40 climbers to rock out at this year’s Scotiabank StairClimb.
