The Lloydminster Sexual Assault Services CEO Tammy Shopland has been recognized as a leader in the prevention of sexual violence.
The Alberta government announced Shopland as a 2020 Inspiration award recipient on July 24th.
The province highlighted Shopland, who’s been with LSAS for 7 years, for her work in sexual violence awareness, education and support in Lloydminster and surrounding area.
“Tammy passionately stays at the forefront of changing public perception about sexual violence and believes in supporting gender equality as many diverse people have walked through the centre’s doors. Tammy exudes natural guidance; she is willing to help and never asks staff to do a job she is not willing to do. She inspires staff to dream big and allows their true passions to shine.”
Annually, the province gives out the awards individuals, organizations and businesses for work that contributes to violence prevention and promoting healthy relationships.
