Kevonnie Whyte

Racial and Ethno-Cultural Advisor

Whether it is consulting with the City of Vancouver as apart of their Racial and Ethno-Cultural Advisory Committee, or organizing Stratagem – Vancouver’s premier Anti-Racism, Equity, Justice, and Inclusion Conference, Kevonnie has stayed true to her passion for working with organizations to ensure inclusive workplaces for marginalized communities. As an International Leader of Tomorrow Scholar at UBC, she completed her bachelor’s in sociology in 2017 where she focused on understanding how social systems intersect to result in layers of discrimination against minority groups. Since then, she has deepened this understanding through participating in systems change workshops as an SFU Beedie School of Business Radius Fellow; working as a board member of the National Congress of Black Women Foundation as well being the Outreach director for the Black in BC Mutual Aid team which has raised over CA $200,000 and supported over 500 black folks in BC with emergency funds during COVID-19. 

Kevonnie is also a Professional MBA candidate at UBC’s Sauder school of business and in her day life is a Business Analyst with the Clinical Systems Transformation Project at Vancouver Coastal Health.
