More About Us

Shalini Jebasingh Patras founded Eirene Group in Fall 2012. Shalini has twenty-four years of work experience in non-profit media. Since she entered the workforce, she worked with leaders from numerous countries in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australia, and Europe. In 2012, Shalini began her Ph.D. studies in leadership. As she researched leadership, she noticed workplaces that practiced ancient Hebrew values had joyful team members and long-term growth. Some themes found in ancient Hebrew ethics are love, trust, forgiveness, perseverance, and truth.


Growing up, Shalini saw these traits in her father, Emil Jebasingh, who led an organization that employs over 3,000 people today. She observed three things about her father's leadership - he practiced truth, he never rejected anyone who wanted to serve, and he never had a layoff. His vision and the high value he placed on people created growth. She saw the same traits in other leaders with high ethical and moral values. Learning from them, Shalini is committed to these high-minded leadership principles that help team members create workplace excellence and find fulfillment at work.​
