Ms. Wolf works at the intersection of communication and design, with a focus on communication for collaboration, the community consultation process, storytelling, and leadership. Previous to her role at UBC, she co-founded and was CEO of the Engineering Leadership Council, whose programs were developed and scaled internationally under her leadership. Ms. Wolf was a board member of the UN Group Earth Charter Cities Canada and is an active leader with Engineers Without Borders. Ms. Wolf has also worked in major capital procurement strategy, negotiation, and facilitating executive decision making.

Reconciliation + Design is a set of adaptable resources developed to enable Engineering faculty to include Indigenous reconciliation in engineering courses. In this preliminary report, former and current Indigenous students, staff, and faculty in engineering faculties across Canada took part in interviews and completed surveys in which they shared their lived experiences of being an Indigenous person in engineering. It shares perspectives, and visions for organizational cultures of inclusive and just engineering.

Pam Wolf does not accept graduate students. As such, emails requesting information about graduate studies opportunities will go unanswered.
