Member news: July 2014

In January we lost our friend and colleague, Karen Virag. Karen represented Editors Canada for several years on the board of Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC). As a tribute to Karen, CHRC has named her recipient of the DUX Award as a Champion of Professional Development. The DUX Award was created “to honour Canada’s cultural HR leaders who have contributed to the dynamic and inspiring cultural life we enjoy in this country.”

During her tenure at CHRC, Karen helped to establish the DUX Award, giving it its name and description. Karen advocated for better HR management and training in the cultural sector; she herself presented the first DUX Award in 2012.
