HR Consultant/BC Public Service
For 15 years, Kiran Dhaliwal worked in human resources and for the past five years has been involved with politics at the federal and provincial level. As an active member of the community who believes in supporting others through volunteerism, Kiran aims to inspire her two young sons to find ways of contributing to the community by establishing positive examples through her ongoing community work.
Kiran served on the PICS Board and was able to fundraise for the PICS long term care facility as well as their women’s transition home, Harmony House. Kiran continues to support Harmony house not only in a fundraising capacity but she uses her HR expertise to help women update their resumes, job hunting, and prepares them for interviews.
She also hosts her annual “Back To School Supply Drive,” collecting backpacks and school supplies to help children in the Whalley and Langley communities who need help.
She is a firm believer that safe and secure housing is a basic human right, which is why Kiran is supporting the Options’ affordable housing project. She would like to see affordable housing become available as she is cognizant that there are many families, especially single parents and their children who are unable to afford housing.
This project is a personal challenge to Kiran, to step out and raise awareness and money for an important cause. This is her way of helping, and recognizing the efforts Options has taken over the years to help people in need. She is quite confident it can be done.
