Dolapo Fadare is a Terry Fox Scholar, Fellow at the Cansbridge Fellowship, Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholar, the recipient of the Sadie Tanner Collective inaugural award for undergraduate studies, and a Canada-China Exchange Scholar Program recipient. Her past work experience crosses the intersections of technology, business, and community development.

For 7+ years, Dolapo has been public speaking on economic and community development, the importance of representation in economics, tech, and public policy. Nationally she has spoken on media outlets like CBC, CTV, and Global News. She has published articles for the Global Institute for Food Security, University of Saskatchewan, and more.
As a founding member and former Chief Financial Officer of Black in Sask, she has contributed to the organization’s mission of holistic growth of the Black community in Saskatchewan through advocacy, research, and partnerships at the municipal, provincial, and federal level. The organization engages with the City of Regina, the Regina Police Service, the Ministry of Education, and multiple school boards to conduct, analyze, and present research to inform public policy. This work resulted in Regina City Council proposing and unanimously passing the creation of a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee.
