    Nicole Chabot, B.A., G.S.C.: Workplace Safety and Health

    Nicole Chabot, B.A., G.S.C.: Workplace Safety and Health

    What do Heavy Construction and being a mother have in common? What about stone crushing and breaking a glass ceiling…what do they have in common? To answer those questions and more, I spoke with Nicole Chabot, the Vice President of L. Chabot Enterprises Ltd. In her own words, Nicole said “I am a woman, I have an Indigenous background. I am a wife, and I am a mother. And I am very proud to work in the heavy construction industry.” As the Chair of the Manitoba Heavy Construction Association Board of Directors, Nicole, only the second woman to take on that role, is leading the way to advance diversity and inclusion in the work place. She understands that having a diverse workplace or a diverse workforce does not make your organization inclusive. She asserts that people need to feel welcome, that they have not only a place at the table, but a voice at the table.

    Below are some links to explore to gain additional insight to the work being done by the Manitoba Heavy Industry Association.

    Karyn Lazareck: Never Doubt A Mother

    Karyn Lazareck: Never Doubt A Mother

    Those were the words Karyn Lazareck said to the medical profession when they had doubts about her intuition of her son Jordan’s autism. On this episode of Humans, on Rights, Karyn talks about how she and her husband Mel raised three amazing boys who are now all men. And how one of the boys, Jordan led her to mobilize a community to create a place where anyone with a disability could find a safe and respectful place in that community. By using her leadership skills and love of her autistic son Jordan, Karyn created GROW (Gaining Resources Our Way).

    GROW is a place where young adults with social, intellectual, and developmental disabilities can learn life skills. Karyn believes that everyone wants to be part of a community. She explains that by using person centred programming at GROW (people are like snowflakes, no two people are the same) that achievable goals, set by the individuals attending GROW can be met or exceeded.Karyn Lazareck’s community leadership has been recognized numerous times at the highest level of awards, being identified as one of Manitoba’s 150 leading community leaders or by the Lieutenant Governor of Manitoba’s volunteer award.
