It is a new era of social business.
We2 asks you, how can we take what we are doing, or what we have always wanted to do to help the causes closest to our hearts?
What is that contribution that we have always wanted to make?
It IS possible to do both! I believe it is necessary to do both to live a happy and fulfilled life.

A WE² bit about Josey :
Josey Kitson has dedicated most of her professional career to moving Canadians to protect animals. After obtaining a BaH from Queen’s University (Kingston, Ontario) she continued her education at Humber College (Toronto, Ontario) were she studied International Development. An internship program through Humber College brought Josey to WSPA Canada where she interned in 2003. Sadly, with only 5 staff WSPA Canada could not offer a full time position.
An accidental career in the financial sector started when Josey was hired as the receptionist at Equitable Trust, a Toronto based lending institution. After just 4 short years she worked her way through the ranks to become the youngest member of the senior leadership team at the age of 25.
Fate intervened in 2007 and Josey was asked to return to WSPA Canada as the Project Manager. She was promoted to Interim Executive Director in 2010 and offered the position permanently in 2011. At the age of 32, Josey is the youngest Executive Director at WSPA – a global organization with 17 offices around the world, work underway in more than 50 countries and consultative status at the UN. Her vast responsibilities include overseeing an office of 15 staff, leading organizational development projects, assisting with Major Gifts fundraising, acting as the spokesperson for WSPA Canada and overseeing the management of campaigns.
