Tatiana is the Equality Fund’s Head of Strategic Communications, where she champions the power of authentic and compelling messaging as a potent tool for advancing gender equality. She has spent her career reimagining the way that stories are told and shared. With a deep belief in human-centred design, Tatiana is committed to creating a paradigm shift that establishes a new normal: one that is more compassionate, more responsive, and boldly pushes the status quo toward a gender-equal world.
Tatiana was selected for a graduate-level externship at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs in Austin, Texas. She attended the University of Western Ontario as a National Millennium Award scholar, where she obtained an Honors B.A. in Political Science. During her undergraduate degree, she spent her final year studying abroad at Royal Holloway College at the University of London in the United Kingdom. She also holds a Master’s degree from the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs in Ottawa, with a focus on Human Security and Development.
Tatiana has lived and worked in Switzerland, England, Spain, Ukraine, the United States, and Canada. She oversaw brand and strategic communications for the largest women’s health nonprofit in British Columbia, produced policy analysis for the federal government, worked in corporate communications for Canada’s largest port, and managed global marketing plans for the world’s largest travel media company in London. Her commentary has been published across a variety of channels, including the Globe and Mail, International Affairs Review, and the Human Rights Monitor Quarterly.
She strongly believes in the transformative power of generosity and community, and is proud to have served as a Member of the United Way of Lower Mainland’s GenNext Committee and served as a proposal writer and volunteer for the Dzherelo Rehabilitation Centre in Lviv, Ukraine.
