We are delighted to announce that Empower Me’s Executive Director, Areef Abraham, is a finalist in the RBC Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Awards!
Areef Abraham is a natural community collaborator who loves to connect with people and help them move from ideas to on-the-ground action. Throughout his career, Abraham has combined his entrepreneurial and technical skills with his passion for helping people to impact diverse communities, such as new immigrants, Indigenous communities and commercial businesses, in a measurable and meaningful way. He has been a tireless champion for improving the lives of hard-to-reach communities in Canada through energy efficiency.
Growing up in post-colonial Tanzania presented Abraham with the challenge to understand contrasting viewpoints and differing world views. In addition, living between Tanzania, the United Kingdom and Canada has allowed Abraham to develop a unique comprehension of how best to reach and engage with a diverse array of people.
