Nicole McLaren

Nicole didn’t expect that her book club would turn into a business, but it did: She is the founder and CEO of Raven Reads. Nicole, who has Métis, Cree and European heritage, chose Indigenous authors for her book club with co-workers and found that the books created a greater understanding of indigenous experiences. For Nicole, the book club naturally evolved into Raven Reads, her subscription-based company that sends quarterly boxes with a book by an Indigenous author as well as products made by Indigenous artisans. Raven Reads has subscribers across North America, offering boxes for both adults and children.
