A Canadian expert in the field of anti-human trafficking and sexual exploitation, and a finalist for BC Business' "Women of the Year", Tiana Sharifi strives to unlock true change in keeping our children and youth safe through education and awareness initiatives and services.
Tiana stands for comprehensive and dynamic education to the 3 tier dynamic of youth, parents, and social service providers.
With her educational background in Psychology and Counselling, Tiana's career has revolved around working in both frontline and prevention with sexual exploitation and human trafficking across BC.
Tiana was the former Program Director at Children of the Street Society and has managed province wide prevention programs, as well as trained and managed staff with educational presentations and in handling disclosures. She has presented to thousands of students, parents, and social service providers in group bookings and at training events.
