Kalina Newmark brings an Indigenous lens to management in a Fortune 500 company

Published: 25 July 2022

As a brand manager for Starbucks’ Instant packaged coffee business, Kalina Newmark seeks to make each team member feel that their contribution is valued at the same level. It’s just one of the ways that Newmark seeks to incorporate Indigenous teachings into her work. For Newmark, who is Shúhtagot’ı̨nę and Métis from the Tulita Dene First Nation, the idea of valuing each person’s contribution at the same level is really important, writes Prof. Karl Moore in The Globe and Mail.
