Ras Takac, Board Director

Ras.jpgRas is a multi-disciplined professional engineer with 15 years of experience in renewable energy, power generation, electrical utilities and construction. Competencies include asset management, industry research, Alberta and Saskatchewan relationship building, energy modelling, and project development. As a Transformer, he is able to take a product, person or project from a raw element or idea and change it into something much better. Seeing the vision and the final product required by an organization, Ras works backwards through the process; planning and executing the final product ultimately crafted by the team.

Ras has joined the Iron & Earth board of directors because of the consistency of the “why” of the organization and how it aligns with his personal mission, to create a sustainable energy future for Canada that would ensure the health and equity of workers, our families, communities, economy and the environment. He believes we can meet today's power needs while promoting clean sustainable energy technologies that everyone can benefit from.

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.
