Yolande James, Radio-Canada’s Executive Director of Diversity & Inclusion, today announced the appointment of Lilly Nguyen as Director, Culture and External Engagement.
Ms. Nguyen brings to the table more than twenty years’ experience in project development, communications, public relations and organizational strategy. Most recently, she was Global Communications Director with the security services company GardaWorld, where her responsibilities included public affairs, reputation management and corporate social responsibility. She has previously worked as a cabinet minister’s aide, for associations and NPOs, and for the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec, Place des Arts and SNC-Lavalin. Since 2017, she has been a board member of ALPA, a provider of integration and assistance services to immigrants.
In her new role at Radio-Canada, her primary responsibilities will be to promote inclusion and drive changes to Radio-Canada’s internal culture while also building relationships with communities and industry players. Her experience supporting equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) initiatives at both the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec and GardaWorld, coupled with the expertise she gained with other leading organizations, will be a valuable asset to the team.
“As it strives to better reflect contemporary Canada, Radio-Canada must remain innovative in both its content and how it recruits and develops workforce talent,” said Yolande James. “I’m thrilled to have such a dedicated and committed group of employees, to which Lilly is a great addition.
