We are 25 years old in research (since 1992) - about the history of capacity building, sustainability, and in terms of following social impact investment efforts in Canada
We are up to 15 years old in terms of relationships - cultivating tried and true relationships with fellow professional colleagues of like mind and heart who “get” each other and have joined the cause not only passionately but have also stood the tests of disappointments over these many years (and to date have done so, without pay)
We are 10 years old or more, in training - where our founder, Trae Ashlie-Garen, has alone taken on over $250,000 in training and coaching, refining her personal and professional skills, all toward the evolution of the WINfinity concept
