I’m committed to creating welcoming workplaces and communities across B.C. by raising awareness about the impact of discrimination and stereotypes on diverse community members and providing training on diversity, equity, and inclusion to employers among various sectors. I manage a national diversity program Safe Harbour: Respect for All with an umbrella non-profit organization, the Affiliation of Multicultural Societies and Service Agencies of BC (AMSSA). I’m also dedicated to volunteering in Vancouver and abroad with initiatives which tackle poverty and inequality and promote human rights and dignity for all.
I completed my M.A. in Intercultural and International
Communication at Royal Roads University, B.C. in July, 2012. I have a Post-B.A. Diploma in Sustainable Community Development from SFU and a B.A. from UBC.
I enjoy creating cross-cultural partnerships, empowering community leaders to develop their sustainable community development initiatives. I also enjoy engaging with diverse audiences in workshops, community-based events, and on social media. I’m excited to bring my knowledge and skills in diversity & inclusion as well as intercultural communication to projects and programs across Canada and the globe.
