   Dinah Morency

Dinah est cadre au sein de la fonction publique québécoise. Bachelière en sciences comptables, elle devient gestionnaire en 2018. Intéressée par l’éthique organisationnelle, elle s’implique au sein de son organisation afin de contribuer aux réflexions collectives pouvant mener à de meilleures pratiques. Au travers de son cheminement professionnel et académique, elle trouve important de s’engager dans son milieu auprès de causes qui lui tiennent à cœur. Elle est l’une des trente ambassadrices et ambassadeurs de la cohorte 2021 du Groupe des Trente, une initiative de Concertation Montréal visant à mettre en valeur des modèles de réussite et à inspirer les membres de communautés ethnoculturelles à s’intéresser aux enjeux de gouvernance et à siéger au sein de conseils d’administration.

D'origine haïtienne, Dinah Morency s'intéresse également de près aux enjeux liés à la diversité ainsi qu'à l'expérience des communautés qui ne sont pas souvent entendues. Marquée par son expérience auprès du Bureau de consultation jeunesse, un organisme qui dessert la communauté et dont elle a bénéficié plus jeune, elle s’implique pendant dix ans au sein du conseil d’administration, dont deux ans à titre de présidente. Au printemps 2021, elle intègre les conseils d’administration de l’Alliance des cadres de l’État et du Centre communautaire juridique de Montréal.

 

 

Tonia Di Guglielmo

"Mes enfants m’inspirent à continuellement apprendre, à me questionner, à accepter ma vulnérabilité et à contribuer activement à faire cheminer la pensée collective. À cause d’eux, je suis persuadée que je suis une personne plus courageuse et confiante que la différence, de tout ordre, est une force. Ainsi, je suis inspirée par la possibilité de m’impliquer au sein d’Exeko, une organisation pour qui l’inclusion est au cœur de ses valeurs et, cohéremment, ses actions.

J’occupe la fonction de directrice générale de l’Association paritaire pour la santé et la sécurité du travail, secteur « affaires municipales » (APSAM). L’APSAM a pour mission de faciliter la prise en charge de la prévention par le milieu, de développer et de promouvoir les moyens nécessaires pour protéger la santé, la sécurité et l’intégrité physique du personnel des organismes municipaux du Québec. De plus, j’ai eu l’occasion de travailler pendant plus de 15 ans à concevoir des budgets, proposer des orientations, développer des encadrements, négocier des contrats et fournir des explications aux décideurs politiques et administratifs en tant que gestionnaire au sein du Centre de services scolaires de Montréal (CSSDM). Depuis plus de dix ans, j'ai eu l’opportunité de développer des habiletés en élaboration et en mise en œuvre de plans d’action stratégiques, de programmes de performance, de gestion des ressources humaines, de planification-prévision financière, de contrôle financier et de gestion de la masse salariale.

Enfin, je suis stimulée par la possibilité d’apprendre. En fait, je suis étudiante au DESS en SST à l’université Laval. Je suis également titulaire d’un MBA, d’un DESS en gestion et d’un baccalauréat en sciences avec une spécialisation en psychologie."

Dinah Morency

Dinah is an executive in the Quebec public service. Bachelor in accounting sciences, she becomes manager in 2018. Interested in organizational ethics, she involves herself in the organization in order to contribute to collective thinking that could lead to better practices. Through her professional and academic pathway, she thinks it’s important to commit to causes that are dear to her. She is one of the thirty ambassadors of the 2021 cohort Groupe des Trente, an initiative from Concertation Montréal seeking to highlight successful role models and to inspire ethnocultural communities’ members to be interested in governance issues and to siege among the boards of direction.

Of Haitian origin, Dinah Morency has also taken a close interest in diversity issues as well as the experience of communities who aren’t often heard. Shaped by her experience with the Bureau de consultation jeunesse, an organization serving the community and that she benefited from when she was younger, she is involved in the board of directors for ten years, including two years as a president. In the spring 2021, she joined the boards of directors of the Alliance des cadres de l’État and the Centre communautaire juridique de Montréal.

 

 

 

Tonia Di Guglielmo

"My children inspire me to continue learning, to question myself, to accept my vulnerability and to contribute actively at pushing forward collective thinking. Because of them, I am persuaded that I am a braver and a more confident person; that difference, of all kinds, is strength. Thus, I am inspired by the opportunity of getting involved in Exeko, an organization for who inclusion is at the heart of its values and, coherently, its actions.

I am holding the position of executive director for the Association paritaire pour la santé et la sécurité du travail, "Affaires municipales" area (APSAM). The APSAM’s mission is to make managing the prevention in the workplace easier, to develop and to promote the necessary methods to protect the health, the security and the physical integrity of the municipal bodies of Quebec. Furthermore, I had the opportunity to work for more than 15 years at developing budgets, providing guidance, developing supervisions, negotiating contracts and providing explanations to the administrative and political decision makers as a manager in the Centre de services scolaires de Montréal (CSSDM). For more than ten years, I had the opportunity to develop skills in the development and in the implementation of strategic action plans, performance programs, management of human resources, financial planning/forecasting, financial monitoring and payroll management.

Finally, I am stimulated by the opportunity of learning. In fact, I am a student at SSHGD in SST at Université Laval. I also have a MBA, a SSHGD in management and a bachelor’s degree in sciences majoring in psychology.”

Ce recrutement se situe au niveau du pôle de programmes en collaboration avec les Premières nations, qui inclut des programmes en communautés...

Bref, c’est ça, les sorties avec la van : entrer dans un univers, puis un autre, puis un autre, sans craindre l’inconnu et l’inconfort.

Pour moi, l’art sert à exprimer des émotions ainsi que des visions. Il sert à créer.

Nous ne pouvons pas effacer ou changer l’histoire ni simplement dire «désolé». Ça ne suffira jamais à comprendre ou alléger les souffrances.
