Norman Poon, CPHR

Diversecities Board Member

As an immigrant, Norman moved to Calgary with his family at the age of 9. Norman’s life in Calgary has been greatly impacted by the work of Diversecities. Both Norman and his brother were participants of Diversecities’ youth summer camp programs. As an after school volunteer tutor for Diversecities, Norman was able to witness first hand the struggles of building a new life in Calgary for newcomers and their families. This experience has resulted in Norman’s passion to assist newcomers in establishing a better life in Calgary, especially in the areas of navigating the complexity of job searching in a new country. 

 

Norman holds a Bachelor of Commerce with Distinction from the University of Alberta, and has spent over 15 years in the private and public sector as a human resources professional. He and his business partner are now working with technology companies across Canada and the USA to help get their products and services to market. 

 

During Norman’s free time, he loves spending time with his family and trying out the many great restaurants, breweries, and distilleries in and around Calgary and the area. Norman is also a news and politics junkie.
