Jill leads national community investment at TELUS including community boards, cause marketing, charitable sponsorships & grants, strategic community investment communications, Team TELUS Cares, employee & retiree volunteerism, and humanitarian relief.

TELUS has always been a leader in creating a workplace environment that fosters employee happiness and dignity. In 1994, TELUS showed leadership in the corporate community by making same-sex couples eligible for all employment benefits. Since then, TELUS has donated over a million dollars to LGBTQ-specific causes nationally.  


We are thrilled to have Jill speak at our event. She will tell us why TELUS and its team members believe so strongly in the words, "We give where we live."
