WATERLOO, ON, Jan. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Union Gas is helping Leadership Waterloo

Jennifer Burnham, Union Gas district support manager for Waterloo District,

sectors, as well as class members, joined in the presentation, which 
accompanied a workshop on the vital role that creativity and innovation play 
in the development of a healthy community. 
"At Union Gas we are committed to being active members in the communities we 
serve and work hard with our community partners to change the living 
conditions for individuals and families for the better," said Burnham. "That's 
why we're so pleased to support Leadership Waterloo Region and the work they 
do to improve the quality of life for citizens in the Waterloo Region." 
Leadership Waterloo Region's Core Program brings together established and 
emerging leaders in the community to build a network of leaders who will 
continue the vision of those who built this amazing region. Tailored for busy 
professionals from the business, government and social profit sectors of the 
community, the Leadership Waterloo Region program provides an opportunity for 
participants to explore their personal leadership styles, practice leadership 
skills in a group setting, and learn more about the community make-up 
including both its outstanding characteristics and the challenges it faces.

this work through both financial donations and by making it possible for one 
of their rising stars to participate in our program every year since 2003,"
