The Famous 5 Foundation is excited to announce some changes to our board of directors. After 8 years of amazing leadership and dedication, Shauna Frederick will be stepping down as Chair of the Board. Shauna became a volunteer with the Famous 5 in October 2010 and became Chair of the Board in May 2016. Her passion for empowering Canadian women has played an important role in developing various leadership programs for young girls across the country and her avid commitment to sharing the legacy of the Famous Five has been instrumental in making the Foundation successful.
With Shauna’s term as Chair ending, Gabriela Wilson will be assuming the position of Chair. Gabriela has volunteered with the foundation for over a year and is extremely passionate about promoting strong leadership in women. As a professional engineer, she knows first-hand the challenges of working in a male-dominated profession and hopes to continue the legacy of strong leadership programs for young girls and sharing the story of the Famous Five.
