Blythe Butler

My work is dedicated to building adaptive capacity in individuals, organizations and communities. My approach is rooted in organizational change, network science, strategy development, evaluation & learning methodologies.

I have a broad and diverse background in strategic planning, change management, developmental evaluation, facilitation and organizational development.  Over the past 20 years I have worked in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, consulting with clients in a variety of topics ranging from ISO Quality Management, Process Safety Culture, Corporate Social Responsibility to supporting clients working on social change in the areas of Homelessness, Youth Mental Health, Natural Supports, Early Childhood Development, Climate Change & Environmental Regeneration, Domestic Violence and Collaborative Governance.

For more than a decade I have contributed to the development, design and delivery of the Human Venture Institute and Human Venture Leadership programs (formerly Leadership Calgary). My contributions to this community have deeply impacted my approach to work and life.

Current and past community contributions include: Board Member of the Human Venture Institute (current), Board Member of Bolivia Kids (current); Board Member of Wildwood Playschool (current) past chair of the Leadership Calgary Program Committee and a past Board Member for Volunteer Calgary (now Propellus). In 2008, I was fortunate to be named to Calgary’s ‘Top 40 Under 40’. I hold a BComm in Finance and International Development from the University of Alberta, have studied Journalism at Carleton University, Design Marketing at Parsons in New York City and worked as a Page for the Canadian House of Commons.

I live on Treaty 7 lands, the traditional territory of the Nitsatapi, Tsuu T’ina and Stoney Nakoda Nations, and part of Metis Region 3 with my husband and my two children. 

“Strengthening the threads tying together our various issues and movements – is, I would argue, the most pressing task anyone concerned with social and economic justice.”
