Lisa Tallio

Bella Coola, British Columbia

Deeply committed to women, Lisa Tallio worked with Minerva BC for the past decade, developing and delivering leadership programming for women across the province. Lisa believes that the most profound way to create positive change is by supporting opportunities for Indigenous women; a proud member of the Nuxalk and Heiltsuk First Nations, she has travelled the province in pursuit of this commitment. Thanks to her vision and leadership, Minvera’s ‘Combining Our StrengthTM’ initiative continues to grow and, in 2017, the groundbreaking ‘Indigenous Roots’ outdoor leadership program for urban Indigenous girls was launched – a dream realized for Lisa.
