BE BOLD FOR CHANGE presented by Dr. Roxanne Reeves, Ph.D.
Dr. Reeves speaks on leadership and is an international speaker and trainer on the intersection of resiliency, human transformation, mentorship,and coaching. She not only has a rewarding consulting and research career, studying the intersections of entrepreneurship, diversity, and mentorship but as a teacher her academic home is at the University of New Brunswick, Canada faculty of Leadership Studies - Renaissance College. There she is a sought-after mentor to students in the Faculty; many have gone on to very successful careers in science, medicine, business, and the NGO sector.
Dr. Reeves’ career developed on the basis of chance happenings, repeated failure, the willingness to take risks and the acceptance and provision of mentoring. Her career has included periods of difficulty and has shifted back and forth between Canada and Asia. Although she has been amply recognized for her successes, her greatest learning has come from her failures.
Dr. Reeves’ greatest satisfaction has been in the development, evaluation, and dissemination of mentorship interventions. Her passion for mentorship is driven by her direct experience with stigma and learning disabilities. She shares in the TEDx Talk, “Mentoring Is Broken: Here’s How to Hack It” how the combinations of intellectual curiosity, emotional gratification, and an elevated- risk tolerance have meant a surprising and rewarding career.
Dr. Reeves’ research is award-winning. She is one of less than 15 scholars whose research has been recognized by the International Mentoring Association. Her research is published in the Journal of Coaching and Mentoring, the Journal of Evidence Based Coaching, and the SAGE Handbook of Mentoring. She is one of less than 20 scholars whose research was recognized by the International Mentoring Association. Dr. Reeves is a former ANBLH fellow and a Mitacs doctoral fellowship recipient.
She moved from Canada to study then work in Colombia, Italy, China, and Japan. She is a former farm girl, model, internationally employed stained glass craftsperson, an political operative and she is always a lover of cats, coffee, and conversation.
