PowHERhouse Media is pleased to celebrate local leadership and welcome Brenda Lucki, PowHERlunch Regina guest speaker, February 7.
A PowHERlunch is an intimate lunchtime opportunity for inspiration and connection with a wonderfully diverse cross-section of women in leadership making an impact, both locally and globally. Our February theme is: ON THE BRINK OF GREATNESS, and we couldn’t be more pleased to have Brenda with us as we explore the conversation of living, learning and leading from a powHERful place.
Assistant Commissioner Brenda Lucki joined the RCMP in 1986 and has since served in Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta and Saskatchewan. She also served twice in the former Yugoslavia and assisted in training and selecting police agencies for the United Nations Civilian Police Mission in Haiti. Starting in 1996, she spent three years as an Applied Police Sciences facilitator at the RCMP Academy, “Depot” Division. She has since occupied the following positions: Detachment Commander, Traffic Services Officer, Officer in Charge of Contract and Community Policing, District Operations Officer, Officer in Charge of the Manitoba North District and Officer in Charge of Western Alberta District.
Brenda holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Alberta and is the recipient of the United Nations Force Commander’s Commendation for Bravery, the St. John’s Ambulance Humanitarian Award, two United Nations Protection Force Medals, the Canadian Peacekeeping Service Medal, the RCMP Commanding Officer’s Commendation for her work at the G8 Summit in Kananaskis, the Commemorative Saskatchewan Centennial Medal and the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. She is also a Member of the Order of Merit of the Police Forces in recognition of her commitment to improve the relations with the First Nations people in northern Manitoba.
A/Commr. Lucki became the 57th Commanding Officer of “Depot” Division on October 3, 2016. She said her career has come full circle. When she joined the Force at 21 years of age, she dreamt of making a difference in the world. With this new position, she can make even more of a positive impact by training the best possible constables to do their jobs well, stay safe and make their communities a better place to live.
