Cherry Insurance-Leadership Saskatoon Community Leadership Award

Zeba Ahmad - 2016 Recipient

Zeba Ahmad Commitment is the best way to describe Zeba Ahmad’s involvement in Community Leadership in Saskatoon. Not only is it about being a tireless, selfless and dedicated leader in the community, it is also about making contributions that have visibly made a difference.

Zeba’s participation spans many dimensions of the community – From raising awareness about hunger and poverty to leading community endeavors like the Royal University Hospital Foundation and the Saskatoon Community Foundation. She gives of herself by encouraging and coaching others to be exceptional leaders, provides opportunities for others to be involved and uses a collaboration focusing on hearing, encouraging and respecting all.

Organizations such as the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency, Saskatoon Public School Foundation, YWCA and the Saskatoon Open Door Society have all benefited from her leadership through her participation on boards of directors and through speaker engagements.

Leading and encouraging the positive development of Community requires dedication, passion and determination and Zeba not only displays these qualities but also lives them. It is through her efforts that the principles and values of Community Leadership grow in our community and helps makes Saskatoon the best community to live and work.
