We have exciting news about another speaker for January 20, 2018! Nasim Kherani is the President of the Edmonton chapter of the Canadian Council of Muslim Women. Here is her bio:

Nasim Kherani is a long-time volunteer having served extensively both within and outside the Muslim Ummah over the past forty years. While serving as Treasurer of the Edmonton Chapter of the Canadian Council of Muslim Women (CCMW), Nasim helped restore and find a new home for Edmonton’s first Mosque at Fort Edmonton Park, Al Rashid Mosque. Following service as President of the Edmonton Chapter and Treasurer of the Western Canada Group of Soroptomist International, she returned to service of the Ummah becoming Director of the Edmonton Council of Muslim Communities chairing the Interfaith Portfolio. As the Resource Development Coordinator for the Aga Khan University, she has coordinated over five major fundraising drives aiding in the creation of an international-standard medical school, nursing school and sports centre in Karachi, Pakistan, and Nairobi Kenya. Most recently, Nasim served as President of the Edmonton Interfaith Centre for Education and Action working to optimize interfaith relationships in Alberta’s capital city. Currently she is the President of CCMW, Edmonton Chapter and also has been elected to be part of the CCMW National Board.

In her professional life, Nasim completed accounting designations (FCCA, CGA, CPA) in both England and Canada. After working in Public Practice in London, England and then as a Senior Financial and Management Auditor with the Alberta Social Services for more than a decade, Nasim switched focus to the health sector managing and accounting for a large dental office for over three decades. Using this experience Nasim has spent the last seven years consulting for the Aga Khan University Nairobi on dental practice management and expansion as part of a larger public-private-partnership. Nasim has completed further training to become a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and now operates a group of companies focused on investment and real estate development. Nasim is honoured to speak at this event. #whyimarch #wm

Bless this sweet boy. Bless his family. On December 2nd we are joining #BLMNY for #futureofthecity #youthmarch led by high school students at South Bronx Community Charter High School as well as other schools to march for justice for those affected by police violence. We march to demand that America stop the systematic killing and oppression of black people. If you don't see it, please read more, ask more, question more, understand more. Once you see it you can't un-see it. Justice for Tamir and all the victims of police and state violence against black bodies. #whyimarch @hawk.newsome

Obsessing over this little pony tail and how big she looks. Why do they have to grow up?

Trying to get ready for my first craft fair, my first Thanksgiving hosting, and truck thru a bunch of other work/life/toddler things. Send wine 🍷. What is everyone else working on this week (other than gobbling up some Turkey)? 🦃🥧
