Hi, I am Jean Farley, the Co-Chair of the Aspiring Leaders
Network (ALN). I'm currently a financial analyst with the
Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat.
I started volunteering with the Aspiring Leader Network (ALN) in
August of 2016, and it has helped my professional development by
giving me the opportunity to work with other volunteers who are
dedicated to promoting the Canadian financial community.
We've organized multiple webinars that have helped people in
their career development and provided guidance on how to address
certain situations in the workplace.
I had the pleasure of hosting my first webinar last year on
Effective Management of Team Conflicts with retired Senior
Assistant Deputy Minister and Chief Financial Officer at Transport
Canada, André Morency. As I was hosting the webinar, I learned
a lot from André on how to handle these types of situations, not
only at work, but in my personal life. These are the kind of
opportunities that I would like to share with others.
The Financial Management Institute of Canada (fmi*igf) has
allowed us to host events during its Professional Development (PD)
Week, generating consistent attendance every year. In 2017,
our event highlighted generational differences, but also explained
how we could overcome these differences for the benefit of the
organization. It was a successful event, not only because of
the attendance, but also because of the participation in the
activities and discussion.
In the future, I hope to see more participation from anyone who
aspires to make a difference and create lifelong connections in the
process. There are numerous stakeholders out there that we
would like to connect with, and collaboration will allow us to
reach even more individuals than ever before. I encourage you to
participate in this great cause, and to get in touch with us if you
have any questions on the ALN.
