Humaira Hamid

Humaira is a life-pondering philosopher-activist, relentlessly curious about the human condition and exploring the question: “How did things come to be this way?”

Her meaning-making led her to marry an academic background in biology and psychology (B.Sc. from University of British Columbia) with a background in experience design, to cultivate a body of work rooted in connection, informed by themes of clarity, responsibility, dignity, and inclusion. As an immigrant-settler on unceded Coast Salish Territories with ancestral roots in Bangladesh, she does her best to be in a good way with culture, people, and land, in a constant process of compassionate learning.

Her voice as her instrument, Humaira teaches, speaks, sings, and whistles what she hopes is a little more joy and a little more truth into the everyday. She is the Business Development Manager for British Columbia at Futurpreneur Canada, and primary instructor of Ethics and Professional Communication at WCCMT. She enjoys dancing, climbing things, and hosting welcoming dialogues exploring approaches to minimalism (#YVRmins), and death & dying (#CConDD). She is fed by presence, and reverence, and has significant trouble resisting a bag of potato chips.

Humaira is thrilled to join the board of directors at Check Your Head to support the imperative work the organization does toward raising just and healthy societies.
