The Nellie McClung Foundation is pleased to welcome newly elected Board Member Joy Loewen to its Board of Directors.
Joy Loewen is CEO of the National Screen Institute, a Winnipeg-based not-for-profit that empowers storytellers across Canada through training and mentorship.
As a lifelong advocate for women and girls, Joy helped launch the Women’s Television Network (now The W Network) in 1995 from its home base in Winnipeg. For over a decade she championed women’s leadership and excellence as a volunteer board member at Balmoral Hall, serving two years as board chair.
Joy is a fiercely proud Manitoban and gives back to her beloved community through volunteerism. She brings her unmistakable energy to many organizations including The Winnipeg Foundation, the Order of Manitoba and Queen’s Council advisories, the Gimli Film Festival, the Nellie McClung Foundation and serves on Canada’s National Ballet School board of directors. In September 2022 Joy received the Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee medal in recognition of outstanding service to her province and community.
