Meet Our Team
Nour utilizes her 16 years of experience as a workforce advisor, mentor, and influencer
to inspire youth to make informed career choices that challenge the status quo. Nour Hachem-Fawaz wants to change global perspectives on women’s contribution to society. Inspired by her
mother’s perseverance to excel in a male dominated field, Nour dug deep into the “why” behind the lack of women in skilled trades. She realized the barriers keeping women out of these rewarding careers were common to other male-dominated paths, so she founded a non-profit to encourage and empower young women to explore careers they may never have considered.
Nour’s challenge to listeners is that one must first address internal preconceptions before being capable of making significant strides that transform our work and world. A brilliant connector and facilitator, audiences are drawn to her candour and unique perspective from an extensive career in workforce development and her lived experiences as a woman of colour. She shares energetic stories of what leaders are doing right and offers real-world examples of how embracing diverse workplaces accelerates success.
Nour earned her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Windsor and expanded Build a Dream across Canada while completing her MBA, raising children, and has many awards and accolades. Most recently, WXN recognized her as one of the Top 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada in 2022. She spends each day following her passion: creating equity in the workplace and all the spaces around us.
