Lenore Gale, VP Internal

Lenore Gale, Vice President Internal at CUPE 2424, works at the Sprott School of Business as the Professional Development and Graduate Internship Coordinator where she provides career support for graduate business students. She’s been working at Carleton for almost 8 years, after graduating from the Master of Business Administration program at Sprott.

Lenore first joined CUPE 2424 as VP External in 2019 before moving in to the VP Internal role in 2021. Her interest in the union comes from the same place that her interest in career services comes from, a passion for helping people have career success and happiness in their workplaces. This arose from her personal experience struggling to find meaningful and sustainable work after her undergraduate degree due to the recession at the time. That experience made her want to help others both overcome struggles in finding stable and satisfying work and to advocate for better workplaces.

Lenore also has a background in the arts as a visual artist, and is President of the Board of Directors of Arts Network Ottawa – an arts service organization that has provided resources, opportunities, and advocacy for the arts community in Ottawa for over 35 years. This role allows her to develop leadership skills in leading an organization that supports the career development and success of artists.
