Eryn developed and currently leads ICE’s keystone initiative: 20/20 Catalysts Program, Canada’s first and highly successful Indigenous clean energy capacity-building program. In five years, it has supported over 100 Indigenous clean energy champions. Currently, much of Eryn’s work focuses on clean energy in northern communities, supporting community energy planning and energy education initiatives. In 2017, Eryn was one of 20 emerging leaders selected by the Arctic Council to take part in the Arctic Remote Energy Network Academy. She was honoured with distinction as a 30 under 30 in Sustainability in 2018 and was awarded the University of Waterloo’s Young Alumni Inspiration Award in 2020. Eryn recently published Arctic Community Energy Planning and Implementation Toolkit in partnership with Gwich’in Council International for communities across the circumpolar Arctic. She is passionate about women leadership in the clean energy sector, specifically Indigenous women. When she is not working, Eryn enjoys scuba diving, basketball, spending time with loved ones and boardgames.
