Wen-Shwu Lee grew up in Taiwan with her Taiwanese mother and Chinese father. In 2001 she immigrated to Canada and is now a citizen of Canada as well as her native Taiwan. Wen-Shwu speaks fluent English, Taiwanese, and Mandarin. Her experience as an immigrant to Canada has largely been positive and yet she has experienced being stereotyped and seen as “less” as a result. In reading Robin D’Angelo’s book, White Fragility, Wen-Shwu came to understand these hurtful incidents as part of systemic racism in Canada – and herself as part of that system. Wen-Shwu is passionate about expanding her intercultural understanding as a way to learn and grow..
Wen-Shwu has studied in Taiwan, the United States and Canada, earning an EMBA, an MBA, in business as well as a B.A. in Fine Arts. She more recently earned a Certificate in Executive Coaching from Royal Roads University and a Diploma in Counselling from the Haven where she often leads programs.
Wen-Shwu integrates coaching, counselling and creativity in heart-brain leadership development programs she has offered to individuals in China and Canada as well as to corporations as diverse as Hewlett-Packard, Taiwan and the Industrial Bank Shanghai, China. Wen-Shwu brings her wealth of lived experience and her understanding of what it is to be an immigrant and a visible minority in a predominantly White culture to her work at the Haven.
Wen-Shwu is honoured to have been invited to serve on the Haven Board and she wants to help re-invent the Haven as a more inclusive, diverse and co-creative organization.
