4 Outreach Events hosted in St. John, New Brunswick, Canada
Dreams Soar was honored to be a part of the Irving Oil company’s second annual “Inspiration Day” on June 6th at their headquarters in St John, New Brunswick, Canada. Irving Oil has been focusing on diversity and inclusion over the last two years, and this event was sponsored by three of their employee resource groups: E3 (Empower, Enable and Engage), which focuses on advancing women in the organization; eMERGe (Millennial Employee Resource Group); and inSPIRE (Parity, Inclusion, Resources & Empowerment). In addition to being the Keynote Speaker at this event, Shaesta also visited with three local schools that Irving Oil partners with and provides support to through their community engagement program. Shaesta spoke to over 700 children in total at these three elementary schools: Bayview Elementary, Champlain Heights, and St John the Baptist King Edward. Our thanks go out to the Irving family and to Chris Taylor and Tara Hamel-Barry, for their ongoing support to Dreams Soar, and for everything Irving Oil is doing for their employees and for the community.

The Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) in London hosts a series of events throughout the year called “Cool Aeronautics”. This primary (elementary) school outreach program introduces children to the fascinating world and people of flying, aerospace engineering, and space. These events represent a crucial part of the RAeS’s
efforts to provide a “through-life” approach to its outreach and careers activities. Shaesta was one of three guests at their special event on July 9th, along with author and journalist Sarah Cruddas and easyJet pilot Captain Marnie Munns.
