Victoria Okereke, Partnership Coordinator

Victoria is a dedicated Fund Development professional who is driven by the belief that every community holds untapped potential waiting to be unlocked, and that every human being, when empowered, has the capacity to reach their fullest potential. She is deeply committed to bridging the gap between available resources and the specific needs of communities, ultimately catalyzing transformative change and fostering sustainable development. Over the course of her career, she has successfully mobilized resources for various initiatives across different industries and thematic areas, including the renewable energy industry. Her skillset includes grant writing, grants management, frontline fundraising with a focus on donor relations and stewardship, fund accounting, project accounting, and non-profit project management.

The ethos of Kaizen resonates strongly with Victoria, driving her commitment to continuous improvement. Outside of work, she actively seeks opportunities to acquire new skills and refine her existing ones.

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.
