Sandhya Ghai

As an Equity Diversity and Inclusion Practitioner, Sandhya Ghai’s passion lies in cultivating mindful inclusion and fostering safe and brave spaces for individuals and organizations to whole-heartedly continue on a journey of learning, unlearning and relearning. She firmly believes that true equity within any organization can only be achieved when each and every employee embraces both individual and collective responsibility towards systemic change.

Her lived experiences coming from India where she witnessed myriad of inequities based on race, class, gender, age, religion, education, and all kinds of injustices that one can think of to Canada that at least outwardly celebrates diversity and inclusion have sparked an interest in her to delve deeper into the realities of one’s identity and how it can be both empowering and oppressing.

Sandhya holds an MA in Adult Education (University of British Columbia, 2007) and an MA in English (India, 2000). She is a certified Intercultural Practitioner (Norquest College, 2018). Being immersed in the EDI space for over 6 years and having the experience of working with several organizations to drive meaningful transformation, she is grateful to finally witness the needle shifting from merely raising awareness to having courageous conversations and tangible impact.
