Leading equity in public health

· 48:40

What can you do with a degree in… history? 
Katy and Emma chat with guest Natasha Thambirajah about how a history and political science degree led to a career in digital health public policy. 
Natasha Thambirajah is a third-generation public servant and has worked for the Province of BC since 2006. Over the past 15 years, she has led nationally recognized examples of transformative, citizen-centred public policy, including the prize-winning BC Services Card and the modernization of gender identity expression on government-issued identification. Natasha completed a double major Bachelor of Arts in history and political science at UVic, and holds a Master of Arts from the University of Manitoba and a Master of Science in Public Health from the London School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. This podcast was created while Natasha was still working for the Province of BC. She recently left government to establish her own inclusive, equitable and BIPOC friendly strategic management consultancy, Haven Consulting.
