Tania brings 15 years of experience working in the charitable and social enterprise sectors to advance youth engagement, social justice, and climate action. She has launched a national charity from its incubator, led the design and development of a digital platform, managed multiple change initiatives, and scaled an organization to double its size.

As a queer, non-binary, non-disabled, immigrant Chinese-Canadian, Tania enjoys bringing her intersectional perspectives to the intersections in life, such as philanthropy x social finance, data x design, climate x justice, and entrepreneurship x intrapreneurship. Outside of work, Tania can be found cycling, reading, hanging out with her wife, or watching the Raptors game.
