Alex is a student at McGill University. She is pursuing a major in International Development Studies with a concentration on Economic Development and Living Standards and a double minor in Social Entrepreneurship and Gender, Sexuality, Feminist, and Social Justice Studies.
Alex works to further DEI through qualitative research and analysis. Knowledgeable and passionate about gender (in)equality, income (in)equality, and social change, she puts together all kinds of content for the team. This includes surveys, document reviews, scripts, resource and data sheets, social media posts, and more.
Alex formerly ran the McGill Collective for Gender Equality, where she worked to foster gender equality and women’s empowerment through advocacy, fundraising and volunteering. She loved putting on panels and roundtables and engaging with her student community. Alex now hopes to apply her leadership credentials to client trainings.
A self-identified settler, Alex grew up in Calgary, Alberta on Treaty 7 territory, home to the Blackfoot Confederacy –which includes the Siksika peoples, the Kainai peoples, and both the Northern Piikani and the Southern Piikani nations– along with the Kutenai nation and the Stoney-Nakoda, Tsuu T'ina, and Métis peoples. She currently resides in Montreal, Quebec on land that has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst the Mohawk of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Huron/Wendat, Abenaki, and Anishinaabeg nations. Alex recognizes, respects, and seeks to honor the fact that she and her family are not the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which they live and play. She strives to align her goals, visions, and projects with anti-racist and anti-colonial practices.
