Hello, I'm Yolanda Vega
As the daughter of refugee parents, my father fostered my love of learning and positive psychology. Throughout my career – journalist, small business advocate, policy advisor, lecturer, and researcher – my mission has tilted towards issues of equity.
My work and life have led me to work with interesting effective people. The relationships established with philanthropists, government actors, and corporations over the past 25 years, continues to provide prospects; partly driven by my ability to inspire people, and my curiosity.
