Estelle Lokrou, Business Development Officer

Estelle Lokrou

Estelle Lokrou is a multilingual (French, Spanish, English) business and programme development professional. She has over 10 years' experience in programme management, coordination, development and implementation. Over the course of her career, Estelle has built a reputation for creating programmes targeting marginalised communities, including older people, at-risk youth, children and people with disabilities.  Her solid experience in 2B2 and B2C, including lead generation, business development, customer relationship management, project management, business management, operations management, public relations, public administration and public policy, has given Estelle a solid background in programme management and the ability to adapt to any situation and, above all, to familiarise herself with all the processes involved in increasing a company's performance and profitability, for example, by implementing appropriate strategies.

She loves people and puts them at the heart of everything she does. She loves to learn. For her, learning is never-ending. She believes that her personal skills play an important role in her professional development and that each additional skill acquired and developed in the course of a job contributes to improving her personal skills. 

She believes that each person is unique and encourages the power that comes from joining forces and fully supports the saying that "alone you go faster, but together you go further".

Iron & Earth was founded and operates on Indigenous land within Treaty Six Territory and Métis Region 4 in amiskwaciy-wâskahikan (in Nehiyawewin/Cree), so-called Edmonton. The home of many Indigenous Peoples including the Nehiyawak/Cree, Tsuut’ina, Niitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Haudenosaunee/Iroquois, Dene Suliné, Anishinaabe/Ojibway/Saulteaux, and the Inuk/Inuit.

We pay our respects to all Indigenous Peoples of this land. Through their spiritual and practical relationships with the land, a rich heritage for our learning and our life as a community has been created and maintained. We recognize that the transition to a low-carbon future must be led by Indigenous Peoples and that there will be no justice unless we acknowledge and repair our relationship with the land.

We are committed to responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action and upholding the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and acknowledge that we are always learning and unlearning practices that minimize harm and lead to the development of trust between us and Indigenous Peoples across Nations and urban centers.
