About the Elders
Launched in 2017, The Princess Margaret Elders harness the experiences of past leaders and facilitate the transfer of knowledge and wisdom from one generation to the next. Members include individuals who have made significant contributions to furthering the aims of the Princess Margaret (PM) to advance cancer care locally and globally. Our network of PM Elders provide guidance on strategic initiatives, support partnerships, provide mentorship to young leaders, and serve as ambassadors of the Princess Margaret's vision to enable
Future Care Now.
The aims and objectives of the PM Elders are to:
- Advise: Offer unique perspectives and provide advice using wisdom gained from lived experiences.
- Mentor: Foster growth and success of early career leaders in the organization through guiding, counselling, and participating in formal mentorship relationships.
- Elevate: Catalyze and stimulate breakthrough thinking, progress, and stretch goals for the organization.
