Gender Equality Advocate & Advisor
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Consultant
Intercultural Communication with an Intersectional Experience and Lens
My name is Eda Sofía Correa Bernini, and I am a Mexican-Italian-Costarican very passionate human rights advocate living and working in the gorgeous weather-ever-changing Naarm (also known as Melbourne) in Boon Wurrung Country.
You can find me currently serving as the Gender Equality Advisor at Victoria Police & contributing to Western Health’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives amongst others.
I am a dynamic and highly energetic human with a deep passion for creativity, human rights, inclusion, and diversity. My extensive background in communications, particularly within the creative, humanitarian, diversity, and inclusion sectors, has given me the opportunity to lead and manage teams. Additionally, I have excelled in the digital realm, assuming roles such as Editor in Chief and Marketing Manager for various platforms. I am a self-taught website developer.
During the past years, I´ve undergone extensive research & training that has equipped me with emerging expertise in workplace gender equality. My commitment to this field is palpable and ever-present, as I am constantly seeking opportunities to foster growth, equity, and inclusivity in both my community and the broader world.
Beyond my professional life (which so often intertwines with my personal one, as it does for almost anyone else working in this field), I am a writer*, communicator, ice-cream connoisseur, curiosity follower, experience seeker, graphic designer, dancing mother, daughter, sister, & wife.
I am currently working on my fourth novel, and contributing original articles to numerous printed and online magazines.
* Most of my personal writing (which you will find here) is in Spanish, so feel free to translate knowing that a big part of it may get lost; especially the rhythm. I am constantly typing away trying to amend this and have a more language-balanced sample of my thoughts and experiences.
