Aftab Erfan

Aftab Erfan is a scholar-practitioner in the field of equity and inclusion, currently serving as the City of Vancouver’s first Chief Equity Officer. She was educated as an environmental scientist and urban planner. She has a PhD in Community and Regional Planning from UBC, where she has since taught graduate level courses and served a four year stint as the Director of Dialogue and Conflict Engagement. Aftab has also worked as a consultant on four continents, helping governments, universities, companies and community organizations resolve conflicts and create more inclusive workplaces. She is cautiously optimistic about the future of humanity.

As Chief Equity Officer at the City of Vancouver, Aftab will be leading the development of an organizational plan and the City's approach to institutional and cultural change, and work with departments to implement the equity framework and integrate and strengthen an equity and justice lens in service delivery. WTC is excited to have Aftab join our AGM to discuss priorities in the role, and how the WTC community can support the work of the Chief Equity office in Vancouver.
