WISE Employment Solutions
Mahe Nau Awan has been working with a multi-barrier population for several years as a Social Scientist, an Academic and Community Integration professional. She started her career in 2008 and has thoroughly enjoyed her roles in Non-Profit Agencies, Government Organizations and Higher Education Institutions across Pakistan, England, Denmark, and now in Canada.
Awan has been passionate about inclusion and equal rights for under-represented groups and that has translated into her varied career choices. With this ongoing quest to contribute, she has been able to promote significant and positive change in communities and individuals through advocacy, empowerment, and compassion. With a knack to motivate and inspire individuals with diverse needs, Awan strives to support them reach their true potential.
Awan earned her Ph.D. in English and Community Inclusion in 2012 from the University of Surrey, UK and has recently received a certificate in Career Development Practitioner from Simon Fraser University. She joined WISE Employment Solutions as an Employment Specialist in 2019 and has been thrilled to work alongside the team of enthusiasts. Her current role entails empowering people with diverse-abilities and she believes that there is nothing more ‘inclusive’ than assisting people to explore, attain and maintain meaningful careers. Awan takes a keen interest in engaging with prospective businesses to address the labor market shortage by providing them long term reliable employees. This not only benefits local businesses but also results in community building, social inclusion, and economic development.
In her leisure time, she loves to drive across different towns and explore nature with her husband and gorgeous twin children.
