2021 Australian Delegate
Vi-An is a registered psychologist and has designed and led mental health programs for Asian Australians across Australia, one of which is a 4-week program that supports women of Asian backgrounds to reflect on cultural and gendered expectations from their upbringing. She has a strong background in organisational development and applied her expertise as a management consultant with Nous Group, Royal Children's Hospital and Deloitte. She applies a science-practitioner lens along with intersectional cultural sensitivity in her work with a strong passion for women's empowerment.
Vi-An continues to seek ways to use her organisational psychology experience and passion for gender equality to support individuals in South-East Asian nations to improve the quality of life for women.
Vi-An lives by the motto “We cannot be burned because this time the fire is ours," a quote by activist Mona Eltahawy.
