Gwen Pawlikowski

Gwen Pawlikowski is grateful every day to create materials and tools that promote diversity, inclusion and belonging. Through her founding of Highlight Communication, she has provided Content Creation and Strategy in written work, podcasting and video materials. These document best practices and successes related to both newcomer workplace integration and the inclusion of women in tech roles.
Through working with organizations such as ISSofBC (Immigrant Services Society of BC), MiHR (Mining Industry Human Resources) and Veza Community, opportunities have emerged to observe inclusion and belonging in a wide range of workplaces, from quirky lunch rooms in IT companies in Vancouver’s downtown, to a uranium mine half a kilometre beneath the Canadian shield.
Gwen’s personal migration history began in rural Saskatchewan, continued into urban Alberta, detoured west to Japan and bounced back into the Metro Vancouver area. She has experienced, and learned from, the restless adventure that accompanies relocation, and the bliss of finding an adopted place to belong.
