Social Development WG
Aurora Vani is a seasoned operations and financial professional with more than 10 years’ experience in the telecommunications industry, and more specifically within the realm of the Internet. Aurora is a qualified paralegal from the South African School of Paralegal Studies and holds a diploma in Public Relations from the Cape Town University of Technology.
Her diverse business and operational experience is held in high regard and has afforded her the position of Chief of Operations at Workonline Communications, one of Africa’s leading IP transit providers. Aurora’s unique mix of business acumen, policy, and service management, together with a deep knowledge and understanding of the telecommunications industry, has manifested in Aurora’s success.
As an energetic and dedicated supporter of the development of the Internet industry, Aurora would like to apply for a position on the Board of ISPA. She sees this as an opportunity to extend her positive impact regarding the changes, challenges, and direction that the Internet industry is currently facing.
Aurora is an avid supporter of the empowerment of women with leading roles in the Internet industry, championing Workonline’s WomenTechConnect initiative launched at iWeek@AfPIF2018. She also volunteers where possible as part of Workonline’s employee engagement initiatives at Afrika Tikkun youth development centres in Gauteng.
Aurora’s three key anchors are helping to develop the Internet, furthering women empowerment and developing basic education in South Africa. By contributing time to ISPA, she hopes that she will not only add value and contribute to the growth of the industry in South Africa, but also be able to increase her involvement in outreach initiatives. Aurora is fluent in three languages – English, Albanian and Greek.
Aurora was appointed by the ISPA Board in 2019 to serve on the ISPA Operations Committee. Ms Vani is also the Chair of ISPA’s Social Development WG.
