Gulnar Vaswani P’22

Chief Culture Officer, Gulnar Vaswani


Gulnar is a talent management strategist, advisor, sought-after speaker and research contributor.

Against the backdrop of today’s increasingly uncertain world, she is inspired by the potential to re-imagine leadership in the 21st Century.

She advises, coaches and trains established and aspiring leaders and their organizations to understand and embrace inclusiveness; to consciously recognize the power of cross-cultural dynamics and diversity; and to learn how to prepare for and harness change. Gulnar is deeply committed to the advancement of women leaders and to bridging the gap between cultures, gender, and generations. Her work is underpinned by a belief that better leaders will shape better businesses and a better society.

Prior to founding her own company in Hong Kong in 2008, Gulnar held senior roles in multinational organizations, NGO and educational institutions that spanned countries and continents. Today her clients come from a range of business sectors and include Fortune 500 companies, and members of the YPO (Young President’s Organization).

Gulnar’s own life journey has deeply influenced who she is and what she does today.

Her dual identity as a woman with Indian origins and a US upbringing, complemented by her experience living and working in different countries, have helped her to appreciate the richness that comes from a diversity of backgrounds, cultures, and experiences.

She now divides her time between Hong Kong, London and the US where her two sons are studying at the Claremont Colleges. She turns to travel, music, yoga and meditation for inspiration and sustenance.

Gulnar received a Bachelors and Masters in Business from the University of Miami in International Finance and Marketing, and now serves as a member of their International Alumni Board.
