2014 Leadership Award
Dorothy Harvey exemplifies what it means to be a leader in health care. Across the province, Dorothy's colleagues recognize her as someone who facilitates change, is a champion of children, youth and adults with special needs and as a clinician who is always challenging us to improve. She is an amazing blend of technical savvy, clinical expertise and great leadership with an eye on the horizon. Dorothy says her role as a mother grounds her in her daily work - putting from and centre her connection to why CTCs do what they do.
Dorothy is an active member and leader in many OACRS-based provincial working groups, task forces, and pilot projects. For many years, she has been a leader in designing and promoting the annual OACRS Conference. Her leadership has helped build and strengthen the critical connection between front-line staff across the sector to increase our capacity to develop and deliver quality and specialized service for children, youth and families.
