Alex will be re-introducing Divesecities’ mission, values, and most importantly, our 40-plus years story of serving Calgarians in need. Alex will lead Diversecities’ team of volunteers and staff to new levels of success as we reach for our vision of becoming a welcoming home for immigrants, where Calgarians of differing ethnic origins are meaningfully engaged in the community.
