Christina Lord, international program co-coordinator at Brescia University College, has been recognized on this year's annual Mayor's Honour List for her humanitarian contributions to London.

Lord has worked for more than 25 years as a regional, national, and international educator. She is a trainer in the social services, volunteer, profit and not-for-profit sectors, including multicultural and first nations’ organizations.
She has worked as co-coordinator for the Black Community Leadership Congress – focused on nurturing new leaders – and has served on a variety of community boards.
Lord currently serves on the London Black History Coordinating Committee, the London Heritage Council and Caribbean and African Self-Reliance International (CASRI) board of directors.
“My first reaction was to be very surprised,” she says. “Then, I was overcome by feeling very honoured that they would consider me for such recognition.”
Each year, many active members of the London community are nominated in nine specific categories to highlight the diversity of philanthropic work taking place in the community. Once a winner is selected for each category, with the recipients to be honoured at the first city council meeting of the New Year, Jan. 24.
The Humanitarianism recipient is selected by the London Diversity and Race Relations advisory committee, which is dedicated to making London an inclusive, safe, and equitable community for the benefit of all community members.
