Ruté joins Tamarack as a Community Animator of Administration and Communications, supporting the planning, reporting and overall marketing and communications for Vibrant Communities.
Before joining Tamarack, Ruté worked with a non-profit organization, Waterloo Cooperative Residence Inc., helping place students in affordable housing. She also volunteers at a local non-profit, KidSport KW, working to get kids off the sidelines and into the sports they love.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Global Studies from Wilfrid Laurier University and a Masters in Digital Experience Innovation from the University of Waterloo.
Outside work, she enjoys writing, swimming, hanging out with her family and friends and just being fun to be around!
Tamarack is excited to present a special one-day workshop with Max Hardy, a leading Australian Community Engagement consultant, along with Liz Weaver and Sylvia Cheuy of the Tamarack Institute to learn core principles and innovative practices to better engage your community.
Drawing on case studies from Australia and Canada, as well as techniques and activities that demonstrate alternative ways to meaningfully engage communities/citizens throughout the lifespan of your project, workshop participants will leave with the confidence to design and lead efforts to generate effective solutions to address our most challenging community issues.
