Victoria Wisniewski Otero

Founder & CEO, Resolve Foundation, Representative, Voice for Social Good

Victoria Wisniewski Otero is the Founder & CEO of Resolve Foundation, a Hong Kong s88 nonprofit established in 2017 to inspire, empower and connect emerging community leaders for inclusive social change.

Victoria is also one of the co-founders of Voice for Social Good, a volunteer-led group of a dozen nonprofit leaders committed to promoting cross-sector collaboration, open exchange and learning, in order to build an inclusive, stronger and resilient nonprofit sector to serve the Hong Kong community. Voice for Social Good came together as a result of COVID-19.

Previously, she worked at Justice Centre Hong Kong, the Center for Economic and Social Rights in Madrid and UN HABITAT in Kuwait. Victoria has sat on advisory groups for CIVICUS Solidarity Fund and Pil-Net’s Law for Change student competition. For her community work, she was selected in 2018 for the prestigious Generation T List and in 2020 received AmCham’s Women of Influence Award.

My Sustainability Goals for 2023:

My lifelong goal is that everyone can feel empowered to take everyday action to make their community more inclusive, and for Hong Kong to be a place where everyone feels they belong. For the coming year, I hope to forge more avenues to attract talent to the social purpose sector and give these dedicated individuals pathways for development and growth in service of the community. This means ensuring that the nonprofit sector has adequate funding and resources to work sustainably and holistically.
