Local diversity advocate receives award

Sasa Loggin received the Service Recognition Staff Award from the Affiliation of Multicultural Societies and Service Agencies (AMSSA) of BC

A local diversity advocate has been recognized for all her hard work.

Sasa Loggin received the Service Recognition Staff Award in recognition of going above and beyond her role of Project Director at Skeena Diversity Society from the Affiliation of Multicultural Societies and Service Agencies (AMSSA) of BC as part of its 2014 Diversity Awards at the society’s annual general meeting Sept. 19 at the VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver.

Loggin has been involved with the Skeena Diversity Society for more than 12 years in a number of capacities.

She was instrumental in the development of the Skeena Diversity Society’s Welcome Centre, which enabled the organization to provide a space for newcomers to receive services, resources, and build connections to adapt to their new home, and initiated many activities at the centre such as the BC Leadership Program, Monthly Potluck and Presentation, monthly and bi-weekly art shows.

“We are incredibly proud of the innovative programming that AMSSA member agencies, staff, and volunteers carry out in their communities. The AMSSA Diversity Awards recognize their contribution to building British Columbia. Choosing the award recipients was challenging. All of the nominees were outstanding,” says Jean McRae, AMSSA president.

Building welcoming and inclusive communities contributes to the richness and cultural fabric of British Columbia.

AMSSA’s Diversity Awards recognize the work that AMSSA member agencies, staff, and volunteers do to promote and strengthen diversity in the province.
