2016 Recipient: Wolf Klassen, CHE

Successful mentorship is no fluke, and Wolf Klassen fosters it by focusing on the needs of the mentee. Wolf, a CHE and active member of the CCHL-GTA chapter, has championed mentorship at the individual, organization, and system levels.

Wolf has impacted hundreds of learners and professionals at the system level. He inspires students as an adjunct professor at the Institute for Health Policy, Management and Evaluation and acts as a mentor in CCHL’s Mentorship Program. As co-chair of Solutions, East Toronto’s Health Collaborative, Wolf rallies community leaders from diverse sectors to learn in a format that promotes professional growth, and builds networks for collaboration. Wolf’s quiet dedication to mentorship might easily go unnoticed because it permeates every area of his work.
