Indspire Awards - Congratulations to Brenda LaRose and All 2015 Recipients
We are thrilled to congratulate Ms. Brenda LaRose, Founder and Managing Partner with our firm as an award recipient for Business & Commerce for the 2015 Indspire Awards. Award recipients were acknowledged at the House of Commons on October 28, 2014 and will be honoured at a nationally televised gala ceremony in February, 2015.
The Indspire Awards, formerly the National Aboriginal Achievement Awards, recognize Indigenous professionals who demonstrate outstanding career achievement. The Awards were created in 1993, in conjunction with the United Nation’s International Decade of the World’s Indigenous Peoples.
Celebrating the 22nd anniversary in 2015, the Indspire Awards represent the highest honour the Indigenous community bestows upon its own achievers. Each year 14 recipients are selected by a national jury for their outstanding accomplishments in various disciplines.
Ms. Brenda LaRose – Métis – Manitoba
Brenda started her own executive search firm, Higgins Executive Search, after seeing discrimination displayed toward her people at her previous job. She on the other hand, saw qualities and huge potential in them and began placing them in leadership roles across Canada. Higgins was the first Indigenous business in Canada to receive the Gold-level Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) Award from the Canadian Council of Aboriginal Business (CCAB) in 2005, 2011, and 2014. With a proven track record for placing many of North America’s Indigenous executives at senior management, executive and board levels across a wide range of sectors and industries, Higgins has earned a reputation as the premier provider of Indigenous executive search services.
Please join us in congratulating Ms. Brenda LaRose on this admirable achievement! You can reach out to her by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or 204-257-9929
