Show Notes

Karen McCrimmon, a military pioneer-turned-federal politician, discusses her 31-years of distinguished service in the Canadian Armed Forces, during which time she broke barriers. Karen was the first woman in Canadian history to serve as an air navigator, and the first woman to command a squadron. She talks about effective leadership, and compares it to a bank account, by pointing out that you build trust like you would build money in an account. Karen tells host Bonnie Mouck about making the move towards federal politics after retiring from the military in 2006. She was elected as a Liberal member of parliament for Kanata-Carleton in 2015, and talks about her desire to serve others.
