Kahina is a firm believer in collective intelligence, and in the power of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.

After graduating from law school, Kahina first immersed herself in the world of international law and dedicated herself to tackling global issues. For many years, she led initiatives focused on international law, working in four languages across many different continents.

Driven by the desire to ignite collective action, she progressively – and then passionately – focused her work on organizations and the people behind them.

Through her role as Chief People Officer, Kahina continues to be driven by her ambition to make the world a better place, one organization at a time. She genuinely believes that great things can only be achieved through the development and strengthening of diverse, inclusive, passionate and high-performing teams. Much like Workleap, the company where she has worked for over 7 years, she is also convinced that people are the driving force behind organizations, and that great leaders know how to maintain elevated standards when it comes to both humanity and high performance.

Kahina is a lawyer by training and was a member of the Québec Bar from 2008 to 2022, having obtained both her law degree (LL.B.) and a Masters in International Law (LL.M.). She also studied international relations at the Universidad de Cádiz in Spain. Before joining Workleap, Kahina held strategic consulting and international law management leadership positions at organizations including the Canadian Red Cross, Lawyers Without Borders and PwC.
