Dr. Harjit Kaur
Dr. Harjit Kaur has been working in British Columbia’s anti-violence sector for the past 30 years in a frontline and management capacity. She is the co-creator of the BC based app – www.isawrisk.com and a part of app development and research utilizing artificial/virtual intelligence to support communities. She comes with experience within the anti-violence sector, commitment to learning and innovation and her unique mix of skills and leadership qualities.
Her work in community participatory research has been grounded in the effort to address inequities and accountability issues for vulnerabilities in safety and health care services. She believes that a paradigm shift is needed to ensure that intersectional standards in globalization policies and practices to promote sustainable development and growth in achieving violence free and safe societies is paramount. The work continues and the vision to create and achieve these goals remains a passion. She is determined that technology can be applied to assist the development and improvement of our refugee and immigrant communities. Our collective efforts and commitment towards this goal is achievable.
