Hi, I'm Nadia Theodore! For the past 20 years, my career has straddled the fields of international trade and public affairs.
I had the privilege to:
Lead communications strategies and multi-stakeholder engagement plans for priority initiatives.
Sit on leadership teams of global trade negotiations; and
Represent my country abroad as the Head of a Canadian diplomatic mission in the USA.
I LOVED THE WORK...
I loved the work, and loved what me being in the space visioned to young women aspiring to similar heights. I was one of the few people who looked like me at a senior level in my organization. The more visibility I gained, the more aware I became of the impact seeing me in spaces made for those on the come up. The overwhelming response has pushed me to speak up more: about my career journey, what
I think the future of leadership should look like and how everyone can shoot their shot at their dream career.
IN THE NEXT
PHASE OF MY CAREER
My career to date has spanned 5 countries, involving high profile and high stakes, where success was the only option. The pillars of my success are my commitment to excellence with authenticity; clear, courageous communication; and compassionate leadership. In this next phase of my career, I want to make space to share some of that knowledge.
