Nick Kendrick, Worker Ambassador

Technical Analyst and Education Specialist, with Greenplanet Energy Analytics

Nick first partners with Iron and Earth through his Masters capstone project, where he mapped out how to best deliver retraining workshops to Albertans, taking into account where oil and gas workers are facing layoffs, renewable energy projects are most common, where Indigenous workers are looking for opportunity and  identifying where reskilling resources are most scarce. Since then he supports Iron and Earth by sharing his own personal career transition story to others whenever possible.

Nick holds a B.A in Criminology and Sociology from Saint Mary’s University and a MSc. In Sustainable Energy Development from the University of Calgary. Nick now works full time with Greenplanet Energy Analytics, a project management company that specializes in clean technology, energy efficiency and low carbon energy solutions. He leads energy efficiency projects, helping track energy data and training workers on understanding energy efficiency technology and energy audit data. He also develops renewable energy and energy efficiency educational material for a variety of audiences. Nick plays a key role in supporting renewable energy and energy efficiency projects in the remote Indigenous community of Fort Chipewyan. He is active in communication work and creates educational materials to support work with  the Indigenous owned company, Three Nations Energy.

Nick has over 7 years of experience in oil & gas waste management, health and safety, operations, process optimization, control systems and sustainability. He brings a strong analytical, research and education background that has helped him support the work of multiple environmental companies and NGO’s.

Iron & Earth is committed to partnering with Indigenous workers to empower their communities to become self-sufficient in training programs, clean energy transition projects, and employment opportunities to combat environmental racism. It falls to all of us to continue the work of healing and reconciliation in our communities and our organizations. Our relationship with the land and the people who live here shapes who we are. It is in the spirit of reconciliation and honouring the past that we recognize treaties and agreements wherever they are and wherever we work.

We also acknowledge all peoples who live, work, and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
As individuals and teams we may make mistakes along the way, but we are dedicated to growth, openness, compassion, and forgiveness. These principles in our work are essential to building successful and healthy relationships with individuals, communities, organizations, and governments.

We look forward to building a path to lead us to a better relationship with Indigenous nations and the environment around us based on peace, friendship, and respect.
