Wesley Gee

Director, Sustainability

My name is Wesley Gee. I believe that it is important to never forget, in our busy lives and endless responsibilities, that we are human – with creativity, character and imperfections. Demonstrating these traits, along with our desire to continually improve – to do better and be better people – is what makes us fascinating.

Combining academic expertise with extensive professional experience, Wesley leads The Works’ sustainability practice. He provides guidance in stakeholder engagement, materiality and performance measurement, as well as CSR/sustainability communications and reporting. Wesley contributed to the development of the GRI G4 guidelines and serves on sector working groups with the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board. He is a judge for CPA Canada’s Corporate Reporting Awards and is a frequent speaker at industry conferences and events. He also lectures for the CSR certificate program at the University of Toronto and for the sustainability certificate program at Ryerson University. Before joining The Works, Wesley was senior sustainability consultant at Stantec and senior CSR advisor at the Canadian Business for Social Responsibility. He holds a Master’s in Sustainable Business from the University of Leeds.
