Sanjana Vijayann

Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce

Director, Diversity and Inclusion

My education is in Economics and Political studies. This, coupled with lived experience as a newcomer to Canada and years working in non-profits, I am particularly interested in understanding why inequities exist, the systemic barriers that exist, and what we can do to create a more equitable world. Through my work creating and implementing diversity, equity, and inclusion strategies, I seek to question, reimagine and redesign systems and practices around us to create a culture that welcomes everyone. I lead with the values of continuous learning and impactful collaboration.

In my current role at The Chamber, I work to provide the Winnipeg business community with the resources and guidance they need to become more resilient, and ‘future proof’ while championing diversity, equity, and inclusion.
