GIP Event featuring KhinSandi Lwin on Empathy & Passion in Global Citizenship
Monday, October 11 at 6 p.m. PST via Zoom Leaving Myanmar at age 10 as part of the Burmese Diaspora after the 1962 military coup, KhinSandi’s life and career pursuits in international development have come full circle—always passionately driven about contributing to communities in need. After a career with the United Nations, mainly with the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) working in Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean, she is now focusing on women’s leadership empowerment and regaining democratic government in Myanmar after the military coup this past February. In her talk, KhinSandi Lwin will share about her work with refugees fleeing Cambodia, Afghanistan, and East Timor, her campaigns to end female infanticide and child labor in India, violence against women and children in southern Africa and the Caribbean, and her current work to support her homeland of Myanmar. KhinSandi’s international journey with her husband and two daughters will lend insights into how feeling passionate about issues translates empathy into action.
