Board Director - Ursula Ducatel

Ursula Ducatel immigrated to Canada in 2012 from France where she spent most of her life.  She is a seasoned Human Resources Professional, with over 20 years of experience working for large multinational companies, and now Compensation Manager for a construction company in Calgary.  Ursula holds a Master Degree in Business from the University of La Sorbonne as well as a Bachelor Degree in Agricultural Sciences.  She is a Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP).

Early on, Ursula’s passion was to discover new people, new cultures and new countries.  She lived and worked in Switzerland, United Kingdom and USA before coming to Canada where she settled down with her family.  Her career led her to travel as far as Kobe, Kolkata, Sao Paulo, Moscow and Beijing. 

Ursula brings a wealth of corporate culture knowledge and experience to the table, and a holistic approach to change management and problem solving.

 “CIWA, for me, is all about getting connected. Connected to a new friend, another mother, a lawyer, a teacher, somebody who  listens and makes us feel at home here."
