Judy Piercey is a former journalist and retired Managing Director of CBC Edmonton who is now a partner in Pen and Lens Communications. She has had a lifelong interest in human rights and spent most of her career writing stories about marginalized Canadians. As a reporter, Judy specialized in stories about Indigenous issues, natural resources and conflict over land use. Her interest in Indigenous people took her to CBC north, where she reported on-air and produced stories from around the Northwest Territories.

As Managing Director of CBC Edmonton and Northern Alberta, Judy was CBC's senior manager for Radio, TV and Digital. A talented community leader, Judy brought diverse groups into CBC to engage in crucial public policy discussions. She is also an advocate for human rights and female empowerment, serving on the Alberta chapter of Think Equal (http://www.thinkequal.com). She was the driving force behind Building Empathy, Conquering Apathy, an annual human rights conference in Edmonton that she chaired in 2016 and 2017.

Judy has just completed her first novel and is currently writing her second book of non-fiction.
