“You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.”

Margaret Thatcher

Evan has spent a career in public policy; first working in Ottawa for a Minister in Mulroney’s government, then as Executive Director of the Independent Power Producers Society of Alberta (IPPSA) and now as Executive Director of Energy Connections Canada. He’s learned a) never to confuse correct with popular, b) there are way more sides than two in any given issue, especially when it comes to electricity policy, and c) and that leadership starts with listening. He’s a devoted husband and proud father.

He recognizes the strong role women have had in Alberta’s electricity industry and wants to help by increasing the opportunities for women, reducing barriers and expanding allies.
