Canada’s Minister for Canadian Heritage, Honorable Mélanie Joly, has appointed Nycum CEO Benjie Nycum to the Board of Trustees of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights for a four year term starting April 1, 2018.
The museum aims to expand and enhance the public’s understanding of human rights with special but not exclusive reference to Canada. Visitors from around the world explore concepts with an international scope through a Canadian lens devoted to human rights awareness and education to promote respect for others, and to encourage reflection and dialogue.
I am very excited to serve this vital institution. The advancement of human rights has been at the core of my life for decades and it fundamentally shapes our approach to advocacy in the work we do at Nycum + Associates. For me this is a perfect fit and a perfect time to serve the Canadian Museum for Human Rights”
– Benjie Nycum
“Canada’s national museums are a point of pride for our country, and it is important that qualified and passionate individuals provide the leadership these institutions deserve. With the dynamic background and skills of these new and reappointed board members, I am confident our museums are in good hands.”
– The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage
