Policy Advisor / Researcher

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.

Leadership & Management Lecturer, Gender  Equality and Women’s Rights Policy Advisor, Non-Executive Director

Teach others how to learn, enhance themselves and their communities.
