Getting Creative to Reach
an Impossible Goal:
The Board Governance Series



Dr. Donna Finley, SSHRC Doctoral Fellow And Founder + Senior Strategist At Finley & Associates.

A key objective of Connections: Mentorship Circle is to help get women onto Boards. To accomplish this, we run a Board Governance Series that educates and empowers participants… Building on Governance 101, Connections presented its third session focusing on the case study of the Calgary French & International School. The session focused on teaching how to fundraise innovatively, learning about Board restructuring, and good governance. More about the case study: From 1999 to 2004, Donna Finley was President & CEO for each of the three volunteer Boards of Calgary French & International School. She was the driving force behind CFIS’s new vision and transformation that included the financing and construction of a $20 million facility and campus completed in 2005. Photos by Kala Ortwein.
