Director | Strategic Priorities | British Columbia Ministry of Education
British Columbia HUB


Danielle Carter-Sullivan is from British Columbia (BC), Canada and works for the Ministry of Education as Director of Strategic Priorities. Her team focuses on emerging and strategic priorities in their Kindergarten to Grade 12 education system.

First, she is a mom, daughter, sister and wife. She and her husband have three children, ages 19, 18 and 15, and all of these roles keep her grounded and fill her with joy! (Most of the time…)

Danielle has worked for the BC Government for almost 30 years, taking time off to travel, live in Australia and have children. She spent most of her career in human resources and recently decided a ‘change’ was needed. She had the fortunate opportunity to come into the Ministry of Education, both challenging (steep learning curve) and awesome (students are at the center of all we do)! She loves to be outdoors, preferably on a lake, going on adventures, cooking, soccer, discovering new places with her family and puttering in her garden.

Danielle is fascinated by the complexity of systems and the inter-connectedness of all we do. In participating in the Certification Program for Compassionate Systems Master Practitioners, she aspires to grow and evolve through this work and bring this lens to the work they do in BC. She hopes to cultivate a new quiet in herself and effectively contribute to system-wide change through compassion.
