Green and Blue "E" and "D" from the Evidence for Democracy logo

I am very excited to share that today we are welcoming our new Executive Director! 

Just before the holidays, I let you know I would not be returning to Evidence for Democracy following my maternity leave. After close to a decade leading E4D, it’s time for me to move on to my next adventure. I am so proud of what we have accomplished together over these years, and continue to be passionate about this work.

My name’s Farah Qaiser, and I’m excited to join Evidence For Democracy (E4D) as a researcher. I’m joining the team to work on a short-term research project to better understand federal science communication.

2020 has challenged us all with the COVID-19 pandemic, increasing misinformation, and the escalating climate crisis. Evidence for Democracy has been proud to stand up for science through it all with new training and resources, a growing research program, and issue-based campaigns. The continued support of our community makes this work possible and for that we are grateful.

After two amazing years, it is with many mixed emotions that I announce I am leaving Evidence for Democracy. While I’m moving into a fantastic new role that I am so excited about, it is bittersweet to be leaving a job and an organization that I love. It’s been an incredible few years and I thought this would be a great chance to reflect on my time with E4D.

Hello everyone! My name is Charlee Heath and I am really excited to be joining the Evidence for Democracy team as a Research Assistant. Despite the uncertainty caused by the pandemic, I am fortunate to be joining the team (virtually) through funding from Canada Summer Jobs.
