Biboye (Bo) Aganaba
Biboye (Bo) Aganaba is Leading Change’s Executive Director where he is responsible for the operations, programs, fundraising, and strategic plan of the organization. His involvement with Leading Change began as the Digital Network Coordinator, where he was responsible for running the Leadership Coffee Chats, and Leading Change Hubs – two key virtual programs introduced as in light of the impacts of COVID-19.
As the son of Nigerian immigrants and also having lived in multiple countries, Biboye is a self-described global citizen. He is passionate about the relationships between urbanism, ecology, social justice, and how we can embrace the natural world within the places that we live.
Biboye has a degree in Biology from Thompson Rivers University where he was a Sustainability Ambassador, advocating for more sustainable practices and behaviours on campus. Currently he is in the final stages of an MSc in Engineering focusing on Urban, Energy, and Environmental Planning through Aalborg University in Denmark. Through his time at Aalborg University, Biboye had the opportunity to engage with local and national stakeholders in various projects and policy proposals – learning more about what sustainability looks like on the Danish national stage and in Europe in particular.
In his free time Biboye enjoys spending time playing and writing music of various genres, watching soccer and hockey, and reading books that are far too long.
Tighearnán Walker is the Communications Coordinator at Leading Change. They are a digital storyteller specializing in social media and web content with a passion for community and youth leadership.
Tighearnán spent their formative years in youth leadership and education organizations which sparked their passion for the non-profit sector. They studied anthropology and communications at Carleton University, culminating in an honours research paper on the position of podcasts in our media and cultural landscapes. Their search for a place to engage with both non-profit causes and dynamic communications lead them to content creation roles with various organizations, both as a volunteer and as an industry professional.
Tighearnán takes time off from writing communications content by reading speculative fiction, camping in the woods somewhere, or digging into story-centric video games.
