Laura Tyler has only been in Manitoba a few years but that hasn’t stopped her from becoming a stalwart community organizer on justice issues that affect our province such as hydro development, austerity policies and food security. Laura is a dedicated volunteer for Manitoba Energy Justice Coalition and is the Executive Director for Sustainable Building Manitoba. With a background in marketing and business development (she earned an MBA from Ryerson University in 2010) and film studies, Laura is passionate about fusing creativity with team building in order to increase her community’s capacity to achieve goals. As a major proponent of big organizing, she gets great joy from bringing people together. Laura is lucky to have spent time working for film festivals, zoos, museums and advocacy groups.
