Halena Seiferling, Researcher, WTC Volunteer
Halena Seiferling is passionate about women's empowerment and local government, and is excited to bridge these passions in her work as a Researcher at WTC. Halena is from Regina, Saskatchewan, and moved to Vancouver in 2014 to obtain a Masters in Public Policy from SFU. Her thesis focused on how to encourage more women to run for office at the municipal level. Halena believes local governments can make powerful impacts on public policy issues, and has also worked on electoral reform and climate change adaptation within a municipal setting. When she's not doing research, Halena can be found hiking, travelling, and performing as part of a women's heels dance company.
