My name is Lyse-Pascale Inamuco and I decided to be daring.
If you ask anyone who knows me, I’m not a politician. I’m all about community. Who is Lyse-Pascale? I’m a public servant who loves seeing the community organizing. I’m an award winning community leader, a Black feminist, a motivational speaker and mental health advocate. I was raised by a family of patriots and public servants so I followed in their footsteps.
That desire to serve is the reason why I volunteer a lot! I was a member of the Executive committee of the Alliance des Burundais du Canada and am a founding member, I am a member of Humura association, I was director at 613-819 Black Hub Noir and am currently the social media coordinator, I am the director of community services at the Rotary Club of Orléans, former co-Chair at Women’s March Ottawa and I spare you more details. I do what I can to support my community, within an organization or as an individual, to honour my origins, but also because I love the feeling I get whenever I help my fellow community member.
When I’m not volunteering, I’m a Consultant in Conflict resolution and Equity at the Centre for Conflict Resolution International. I also consult for the not-for-profit organization Parents for Diversity as a Program Manager and Marketing coordinator. I graduated from the University of Ottawa with a Bachelor’s degree in Social sciences specialized in Conflict studies and Human Rights.
I’m also engaged in creating a just and equitable society by organizing and co-leading anti-Black racism workshops for various institutions.
I believe that representation matters and this is why I decided to run in the 2020 Cumberland byelection for the position of City Councillor. We need to keep advocating and pushing for more representation at all levels of decision making.
