One more staffer, this one Tagalog- and Mandarin-speaking, for mayor’s office

March 7th, 2010 · No Comments

An announcement about the hiring of another staffer for the mayor at 12th and Cambie going out shortly, this one for Lara Honrado. That brings the number of people working in the mayor’s office to four. Here’s the bio going out. Interesting how important the Filipino community has become in municipal politics here.

Lara Honrado is the co-founder of Kina Social Ventures, a registered Canadian charity that supports women’s literacy, girls’ education and mountain porter communities in rural Nepal.

She began her career in public relations as media director for the first global Microcredit Summit in Washington, DC. Since then, she has worked as a communications strategist in the corporate sector and for a leading international activist media foundation. She has served on the boards of two leading AIDS organizations: Pediatric AIDS/HIV Care in the U.S. and Positive Women’s Network in Canada.

Currently, Lara runs mango, a multicultural communications and social marketing firm based in Vancouver, where she lives with her husband and daughter.
