Monica Bisal, Director, University Communications

Monica received her Gold Quill award for her part in overseeing the development of a dedicated channel—the SFU Innovates website and associated content and distribution strategy. The website shares SFU’s unified and distinct innovation and entrepreneurship narrative though storytelling and strategic proof points across faculties that align to the SFU Innovates key priorities.

SFU's Sustainability Office

The Sustainability Office was honoured for their communication strategy entitled Envisioning our Sustainable Future. Their work plan outlined methods they used to engage their internal audiences to envision the university's long-term sustainability vision and goals. The plan also outlined a launch strategy to recognize the community’s contributions and illustrate their shared responsibility in achieving them, all while advancing SFU’s engaged brand. The plan further advanced SFU's reputation for leadership in sustainability innovation.
