Member Profile: Irine Polyzogopoulos
March is membership month at CPRS! All month, we will be getting to know some of our CPRS-VI members.
Meet Irine Polyzogopoulos
What’s your current job title & workplace? Communications and Development Coordinator, Uu-a-thluk Fisheries, Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council. How long have you worked in PR/comms? I just entered my fourth year. What’s one or two specific areas of expertise that you have that members can reach out to you for advice? Indigenous relations. Working with the 14 First Nations of the Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council these past two years has been incredible; I've been exposed to Indigenous spiritual and social practices, and have learned about hereditary vs. elected leadership. I've also learned about the ways the Canadian government consults with Indigenous Peoples, and how methods can be improved. What’s your guilty pleasure? I don't believe in guilty pleasures, just pleasures! That said, I probably spend too much time watching dog videos on Instagram and am fairly certain I love Willie Nelson more than most people. What’s your favourite word or expression right now? Impeachment Connect with Irine on LinkedIn.
