HAMILTON, ON – The Hamilton Anti-Racism Resource Centre (HARRC) is pleased to announce that Lyndon George will be its new executive director.
An award-winning community builder, health equity advocate, anti-racism leader and government relations expert, Lyndon will report to HARRC’s board of directors and be responsible for leading HARRC’s reopening and fulfilling its strategic plan.
Lyndon brings more than 15 years of experience in government relations at both the provincial and federal levels to the role. He is also an active member of the Hamilton Health Sciences President’s Advisory Task Force on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.
