Maggie McCormick manages communications at Arrell Food Institute at the University of Guelph as the communications coordinator and is constantly exploring how language, design, and relationships can support agri-food in the effort to create a more sustainable future for all.
Maggie’s career as a communicator began in the University of Guelph’s OAC Dean’s Office and continually evolved to support the university’s establishment of significant research programs and exploration of new avenues of engagement with agri-food industry and policy makers.
