Angela Robertson has spent her life helping other women. Currently the Director of Equity and Community Engagement at Women’s College Hospital, she has been an active member and leader of the Black and women’s communities, helping implement various programs to help support those in need. As the previous Executive Director of Sistering – A Woman’s Place, an organization that offers support to homeless and low-income women, Robertson helped double the agency’s budget and facilitated the expansion of the agency’s headquarters.

A York University graduate, Robertson has also been heavily involved in the Black Queer community, co-founding Blockorama, a celebration of black PRIDE, which marked its 12th anniversary this year. She has been a key member of mobilizing campaigns for social justice issues, from her early days at York where she founded the group, Black Women at York, to her current position as chair of the governance board of the Black Coalition for AIDS Prevention. She’s a lady with a heart, whose compassion and vision has helped, and still continues to help, the most marginalized women in our community.
