Coordinator, HR and Administration
Katryna Chan (Kat or K) has joined CCDI’s HR team, to provide end-to-end support for colleagues to get them started in all of the best ways with CCDI. Kat brings a degree in communication and social sciences, supported by over nine years of HR expertise in a provincial government organization. In addition to this, K takes pride in having the personal and professional experience of living within multilingual, multicultural, and marginalized communities and social groups.
Katryna sees life through the lens of a young, biracial BIPOC, and as someone with an invisible disability; and has personally experienced the effects of living intersectional in overlapping marginalized groups. K uses invisible superpowers to increase accessibility to employment, resources, and supports for those who are systemically disabled by the status quo.
When there is time, Kat is a maker of all things. K sews, woodworks, welds, 3D prints, designs, and even owns a laser cutter! Katryna knows that there is nothing in the world that can’t be fixed with the right amount of time, effort, and elbow grease – and is just the person to do it!
