Science Atlantic Wins $5,000 Donation

Lois Whitehead is the lucky winner of a $5,000 donation from Pivoter and GIV3. The donation will be gifted to Science Atlantic, where Lois has been Executive Director for over 20 years!

Pivoter is a Canadian changemaking engine using the wisdom of many to inform policy recommendations. Through the discussion of ‘Challenges’ on a user-friendly crowd-sourcing platform, Pivoter collects diverse voices, opinions, input, and feedback to help identify and develop policy recommendations. At the end of each Challenge, they summarize and share these inclusive, transparent, and data-driven insights with the media and policymakers in Ottawa.

The $5,000 donation will help the organization continue to advance post-secondary science education and research in the Atlantic provinces.
