Shabna Ali

Senior Social Planner | City of Vancouver | Canada

Shabna Ali is a versatile leader with a powerful combination of business experience, mindset and a track record of working in not-for-profit organisations where optimising available resources is a must. She is particularly motivated when she sees opportunities to drive improvement – by increasing satisfaction, reducing costs, expanding reach, to name a few – and is willing to research, explore, and work tirelessly to implement positive change. Shabna has always found that lasting, meaningful change arises out of stakeholder engagement and buy-in. Since joining the City of Vancouver, she has been working to implement the Community Benefits Agreement policy which aims to provide value back to communities through employment and supply opportunities.
