“My SFU economics courses helped me to understand the economics of natural resources and to ensure that in my career in forestry I always kept sustainability in mind. I always looked for ways to support the interests of the wider community because I understood the value – in dollar terms – of maintaining a social licence to operate.” These are among the reflections of Anne Giardini, Q.C., on her career in forest resources. Giardini is an executive, lawyer, writer, and current chancellor of SFU. Recognized as one of Canada’s most influential women, Giardini’s is a true renaissance woman.
