The Toronto Environmental Alliance (TEA) is excited to announce our new Executive Director, Emmay Mah.
For the last 15 years, Emmay has worked in the non-profit sector, developing and managing programs focused on child rights and protection, HIV/AIDS, Indigenous health, and the environment. Most recently, Emmay was the Project Director for Enviromentum, a project of Tides Canada. In this role, she led innovative initiatives that apply evidence-based behaviour change techniques to climate change programs.
Emmay has also served previously as a member of TEA’s Board of Directors and collaborated with TEA on research and community engagement around climate action.
Emmay is passionate about building a diverse and inclusive climate movement, and a more equitable and sustainable city. Emmay is a co-founder of the People's Climate Movement in the GTA, and the Co-Chair of the Toronto Climate Action Network (TCAN). She participated in the City’s Modelling Advisory Group for the TransformTO climate strategy. As Executive Director, she will use this passion to advance TEA’s work building a greener city for all.
Over the last few months, TEA’s hiring committee undertook a rigorous hiring process. TEA would like to thank the hiring committee for their work, our Interim Executive Director Graham Mitchell for his work in leading the organization through the transition, and Franz Hartmann, for his previous 11 years of leadership as TEA’s Executive Director.
Emmay will begin her new role at TEA on January 28th, 2019.
