Hi, I’m Sahana Parameswara!

Executive Director, FRC Director, Research and Development

An uninvited guest in Amiskwacîwâskahikan and racialized ally to equity seeking groups including the pandisability community. After a decade of immersing myself in trauma informed practices, cross cultural therapeutic community modalities and working with systems that impact children and youth, I arrived at Gateway Association. I see my role as holding space for the pandisability community and their support network to build safe and inclusive spaces with equitable access that recognizes diversity.

Values guiding my work are patience, love, courage and creativity.

Passion for creating mindful work culture, equitable universal design principles and deconstructing systems thinking. Spending time by the ocean is a privilege I enjoy periodically.
