Meet Jyoti. She is the manager of the Language Training and Childcare Department at CIWA.

Jyoti joined CIWA as a counsellor in 2012 after being drawn to the organization with her personal passion for working with immigrant women looking for support. Jyoti has now been working with CIWA for over 9 years.

“Women are a family’s foundation and the country’s pride. I like working with immigrant women as they have untapped potential and are resilient.”

Jyoti moved to Canada in pursuit of a secure future and better opportunities. She speaks Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu. She is grateful that her job provides her opportunities to learn and grow personally and professionally.

“I am proud of my past, perseverance and choices, willingness to learn from mistakes and grow. I am also proud of family and good friends who have helped carve me to be my best.”

Outside of work, Jyoti enjoys watching movies, exploring nature, yoga, meditation, and spending quality time with her family.
