Patricia Wong

CEO

As the CEO of Edu-aequitas, Patricia's vision is to share her experiences with emerging workers on the importance of skills. Deprived of an opportunity for formal education, Patricia climbed the corporate banking ladder relying on hard work and perseverance. While she started her career limited by academic credentials, it was quickly balanced with developing a growth mindset and acquiring the proper skills. Now a grandmother, she is utilizing the same skills as a reflective practitioner to determine the best learning style suited for her grandson
