Our Team

Sarah is of Indonesian Chinese and British ancestry, and has spent her life navigating complex intercultural contexts. As a facilitator and therapist, her focus is on creating and holding safe spaces of truth-telling for people to explore issues that arise around diversity (with a focus on race and gender/sexuality) in the face of complex and challenging power dynamics. For the last decade, she has facilitated courageous dialogues around these issues across corporate, educational and civil society spaces. Since completing her BA in Social and Political Sciences at Cambridge and her Masters in Diversity Studies at UCT (2006), Sarah has been living in Cape Town, but frequently travels to other parts of South Africa and abroad. Sarah is a lead facilitator with Kopanya, working with both individual and organisational clients.
