Kate is excited to learn and work alongside diverse community members to develop West Coast LEAF’s 2022-2024 Gender Equality Report Card. Kate’s previous research work has included projects on housing, homelessness, racialization, and urban development; digital exclusion and access to justice; public policy participation and debate; transit accessibility; and community-based healthcare. She also holds a PhD from the University of British Columbia. Kate lives on unceded xwməθkwəy̓əm, Skwxwú7mesh, and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ homelands where she is grateful to spend time in the mountains, on rivers, in the garden, and in community. A settler with British and Irish ancestry, Kate honours the Indigenous stewards of these lands. She is deeply inspired by community-led struggles for self-determination, equality, and justice.
