Penaaz (she/her) moved to Vancouver from India in 2018. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce from Punjab University and a Post Degree Diploma in Business Administration from Langara College. Coming to Canada was not always in the cards for this Punjabi girl, however, it is a decision that she has come to love. A passionate events professional, Penaaz has been in the non-profit industry for three years. She considers it her responsibility to use her platform and privilege to raise awareness about inclusion and intersectionality.
Penaaz still has lots to learn in the non-profit sector and by joining the team at SCI BC, she is hoping to make a small difference in the community. The dynamic team of individuals she is working alongside have already inspired her with their stories. She hopes to continue learning from them and their experiences.
When not at work, you will mostly find her at home being lazy or stuck to her phone. Nevertheless, she is always up for conversation, grabbing a scoop of ice cream or watching a sunset (if these three things happen together that’s even better!). She also enjoys fiction, Hindi music and comedy TV.
