As a feminist educator, transformative facilitator, social justice activist and presenter, Priti Shah brings 30 years of insights and experiences to her work for equity and justice. Her activism and political advocacy have been shaped by her upbringing in India and her experiences as a racialized settler in Canada. Using a collaborative intersectional approach and building capacity, much of her work is focused on challenging systemic racism, sexism and approaches that negate immigrant, refugee, and non-status women’s potential and experiences. Over the last 30 years, she has been working with non-profit organizations, public sector unions, governments, interfaith organizations, and grass roots collectives. She has created over 500 workshops/programs/focus groups to challenge gender and racial inequality. Currently she is President of CRIAW (Canadian Research Institute for Advancement of Women). She is actively involved in municipal committees, local and national committees/boards, and the labour movement (she is currently working at Hospital Employees’ Union as Equity and Human Rights Officer) and was recently recognized with the Inspirational Wonder Women award, the TOP 25 Canadian Immigrant award and the Drishti Award for Excellence in Community Engagement. She has also founded numerous community organizations and initiatives including URJA International and Miracle Connection local refugee centre.
