At DIVERSEcity, we often share the incredible stories of the newcomers and diverse community members who we support as they build their life in Canada. Behind the scenes, the people of DIVERSEcity, many of whom are immigrants themselves, have their own lived experiences to share. DIVERSEcity would not be the community-building, charitable organization it is without the dedication and passion of our amazing employees and volunteers, who have shown us what resilience means during this ongoing pandemic.
This week, we are spotlighting Ninderjit Kaur Mann, who is a contract facilitator and trainer with DIVERSEcity Skills Training Centre. Originally from India, Ninderjit has been with DIVERSEcity for almost five years. She fuels her passion for teaching by helping clients explore and learn new skills so they can confidently enter the workforce.
