Free admission, everyone welcome!

Join us for a lecture by Zita Cobb. Zita is a Canadian businesswoman and social entrepreneur. She grew up on Fogo Island, off the coast of Newfoundland, and went on to a career as a senior finance professional in the high tech industry. The former Chief Financial Officer for JDS Fitel and Senior Vice President of Strategy for fiber optics manufacturer JDS Uniphase, Cobb left the industry in 2001 to pursue her personal goals and to dedicate her energies to philanthropic work.

She founded the Shorefast Foundation, and is now actively involved in projects that contribute to a resilient and vibrant future for Fogo Island and Change Islands. This past June Cobb was made a member of the Order of Canada for “her contributions as a social entrepreneur who has helped revive the unique rural communities of Fogo Island and Change Islands through innovative social engagement and geo-tourism.”

This lecture marks the fifth collaboration between Museum London, the School for Advanced Studies in Arts and Humanities and Public Humanities @ Western.
