Hi, I’m Renate Burwash

Director Inclusion & Consulting; Edmonton

I have 13-years of being a part of the Gateway family. My experience began on the family support side prior to any employment program. The first project was the creation of the Families Forward Program, and subsequently, in 2012, with the help of the team, I developed Gateway’s employment program.

I am mad-passionate about inclusion and strive to be compassionate and supportive with everyone I encounter in and outside of work.
