About the Event

Advancing women’s future is what inspires change. In recognition of International Women’s Day on March 8, 2023 at 4:00pm PST // 5:00pm MST // 7:00pm EST, the Women in Leadership Foundation Alberta Chapter is proud to spotlight an inspirational change-maker and leader, Lori James, Executive Director of the Making Changes Association. 

Lori’s career journey has taken her from for-profit work, to launching her own coaching business, to non-profit management.  Through some humbling mistakes, tough lessons about vulnerability, and some wonderful mentors and colleagues, Lori learned the value of stepping into her true self, finding her voice, and knowing that we all deserve to be heard and belong.  

At Making Changes, Lori is grateful to help empower other women in a position she never would have considered dreaming about just a few years ago.  Lori teaches us that we are all leaders, regardless of what our professional title says. Join our free virtual event to learn how to lead and thrive in all aspects of life with vulnerability and authenticity.

Speaker Bio:

Lori James - Making Changes Association; Executive Director 

With over 30 years of experience empowering teams, supporting clients, and generating results, Lori’s career focus has been on the value of relationship building – both internal and external relationships – and their impact on the bottom line.  

Lori’s career journey has taken her from for-profit work in the business communications and training field, to launching her own personal coaching business, to working in non-profit organizations.  Lori has spent the last 15 years in senior roles within non-profit organizations guiding and supporting strategic planning, program development, human resources, funding initiatives, and stakeholder engagement.  

In October 2022, Lori joined Making Changes Association as their Executive Director.  The association has over 40 years of empowering women, those who identify as women, and teen girls – helping them reach their full potential.  The alignment of Lori’s passions, and the vision and values of Making Changes, is an exciting chapter in Lori’s life – bringing her experience and life-long focus on people, full circle.  

As a self admitted workaholic, Lori appreciates the patience of her husband Tim, and daughter Virginia, and the times they can get away for road trips and adventures with their dog Tux. 


Founded in 2001, Women In Leadership Foundation (WIL) delivers inspirational programs that bring women together to collaborate in the development of their leadership skills & creates positive change in the future of women’s leadership.
