United Way Leeds & Grenville Announces New Community Impact Officer

Brockville, ON - As a follow-up action to our report released earlier this year, United Way Leeds & Grenville (UWLG) is moving our community impact agenda forward. We are so pleased to welcome Jane Hess to the United Way Leeds & Grenville team as a Community Impact Officer effective Sept.13/22. Jane is well known to many in Leeds and Grenville from growing up in Kemptville, teaching nursing at St. Lawrence College and her years of experience with the LGL Health Unit. Jane has a passion for Health Equity, the Social Determinates of Health and the power of community to work together to improve life for all.

“I am convinced that Jane will add another layer of success to our Community Conversations as we transition from pandemic life”, said Trish Buote UWLG Executive Director. “Our United Way is committed to Health Equity and providing opportunities for success for all citizens. UWLG as an enabler of change, plans to partner with communities, community partners and citizens in Leeds and Grenville to achieve social change.”

Jane will be reaching out to key influencers in the communities to have them identify those who will contribute by identifying their shared concerns, visions and strategies to create diverse community teams to support innovation for social change. Communities working together will increase capacity and impact, powered by UWLG!
