Mohini Datta-Ray may have set her career sights on becoming a dolphin trainer when she was (very) young, but today she’s making huge waves in the world of social justice. As Executive Director of North York Women’s Shelter (NYWS), Mohini secured over $21 million in funding to rebuild NYWS, one of Toronto’s oldest violence against women emergency shelters. Today she ensures NYWS creates opportunities for creativity, solidary and safety between diverse groups of women and gender non-binary folks. Mohini’s past work has seen her lead important HIV prevention education, sex education and healthy relationship projects with Toronto’s marginalized communities. Driven by social justice, Mohini believes that leadership means harnessing a community’s desires and needs to become a conduit for change, justice and shifting of power. Connect with Mohini.
