Victoria Wisniewski Otero

Founder & CEO

Victoria founded Resolve with one question in mind: in an age of increasing polarization and intolerance, how can we build more inclusive and accepting societies? She believes the answer lies in harnessing the power of communities themselves to bring about positive social change. At Resolve, Victoria provides strategic direction, forges opportunities for collaboration, oversees operations, and ensures progress of the organization to advance its mission, vision, and values. Before founding Resolve, Victoria worked at Justice Centre Hong Kong, the Center for Economic and Social Rights (CESR), as well as the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN HABITAT). She has been featured on CNN, BBC, Thomson Reuters, AFP, RTHK, The Guardian, and SCMP, amongst others and was selected for Tatler Magazine’s 2018 Generation T List. She also sits on the Membership Advisory Group of the CIVICUS Global Alliance’s Solidarity Fund. Victoria received a Master’s in International Studies from The Graduate Institute Geneva (IHEID) and a Bachelor’s magna cum laude from the University of Maryland College Park. Victoria is also part of the senior organization team at TEDxWanChai and loves discovering Hong Kong heritage, hiking, travel and good cinema.
