Jean-Marc Mangin, Executive Director, Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences
I am very pleased to introduce Gauri Sreenivasan as our new Director of Policy and Programs. Gauri brings nearly 25 years of policy and programming experience, most recently as the Director of Parliamentary Affairs in the Official Opposition Leader`s Office. Gauri also worked for 15 years at the Canadian Council for International Cooperation (CCIC) as a senior analyst and team coordinator. Gauri has a deep understanding of the legislative and policy making process, including the complexities of the interactions between research, policy stakeholders, and decision makers across a wide range of issues-- both domestic and global in scope. I look forward to calling on her rich expertise in government relations.
At a program level, Gauri has developed complex and successful initiatives with academics, diverse stakeholders and funders (from conferences to workshops to national policy dialogue consultations), including working cross-culturally and in multilingual environments in member-based national organizations. Very comfortable in both of Canada's official languages (with some Spanish as well), Gauri has a MA in International Affairs from Carleton University.
