CREW Vancouver Economic Luncheon LT

CREW Vancouver Economic Update presented by The Scotiabank Women Initiative

Wednesday, Feb 28, 2024

CREW Vancouver is excited to welcome you to our first signature luncheon of the year, the Economic Update presented by The Scotiabank Women Initiative.


Rebekah Young Mar 2019Rebekah Young | Vice President, Head of Inclusion and Resilience Economics at Scotiabank

Rebekah joined Scotiabank in 2019 as Director, Fiscal & Provincial Economics, and in 2022 was appointed Scotiabank’s first Head of Inclusion and Resilience Economics with a mandate to provide thought leadership on inclusive economic growth that is resilient in an evolving and ever-changing world.

In this role, Rebekah approaches some of the key issues of our time – climate change, technological transformation, economic disruption, labour demographics and more – through a lens that includes more than broad macroeconomic concerns but also focuses on sectoral and even household vulnerabilities that can stand in the way of prosperity.

Rebekah was an early advocate for corporate sustainability - a theme that continues to influence her analysis today. She began her career promoting corporate responsibility at the World Business Council for Sustainable Development in Switzerland and fostering clean-plant design as an engineer with Hatch Associates in Toronto. She has also held senior roles at the federal Department of Finance and the International Monetary Fund.

She holds an MBA from INSEAD in France and Singapore, a Master’s degree in Environmental Assessment and Evaluation from the London School of Economics (UK), and a Bachelor of Arts in Chemical Engineering from McGill University.

In 2005, Shawna embarked on her career in the commercial real estate industry. Her affinity for research within the business quickly became evident, leading her to assume the role of Director of Research at Colliers International Vancouver. Relocating to Toronto in 2010, Shawna spent a decade in the city, spearheading the Colliers Research team for the Greater Toronto Area and serving as the National Director for InSite at Altus Group. Returning to her hometown of Vancouver, she then held the position of National Office Research Manager at JLL Canada before joining Avison Young in July 2023. Presently, Shawna leads the Vancouver Market Intelligence Team at Avison Young, overseeing the production of reports and thought leadership initiatives focused on the commercial real estate market in Vancouver. Throughout her career, her insights into the market have been featured in major news outlets across Canada. Known for her meticulous attention to detail and innovative thinking, Shawna consistently excels in driving strategic initiatives. Over the years, she has held memberships in the Toronto and Vancouver chapters of NAIOP, CREW, UDI, and ULI.
