on the unceded and traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples – sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) nations.
Taslim focuses on connecting intercultural education and mindfulness in the classroom, community and workplace. Her approach is grass roots and her goal is to help foster intercultural connection by providing safe spaces for dialogue and practical tools that are relevant and easy to integrate into daily life. She works to bring skills and confidence to navigate diverse spaces to a range of audiences. Taslim also works with strategy development. Her core values are mindfulness, empathy, inclusion, innovation and mentorship.
