Savoir et Démocratie était à l'origine une organisation basée uniquement sur le travail de bénévoles. Aujourd'hui, l'efficacité et la portée de nos campagnes dépendent toujours de l'implication et du dévouement de notre communauté de bénévoles. Nous sommes reconnaissants envers ces individus qui partagent leurs compétences et donnent de leur temps à notre organisation.
Nous présentons ici certains bénévoles qui ont joué un rôle clé dans la réalisation de nos projets.
Chantalle Briggs is a PhD candidate in Medical Neuroscience at Dalhousie University. Her research focuses on the cellular and molecular changes underlying sleep/wake behaviour. She has worked extensively in science outreach in both official languages, particularly among Canadian youth. Chantalle has worked with Evidence for Democracy on several projects, and is currently the Project Coordinator of E4D’s Canada Science Sentinel (CSS) - a centralized source of archival data and information on Canadian science policy. In this role, she is responsible for helping develop policy positions, oversee volunteers, and bring together the range of expertise across the CSS team.
As a past research assistant at the Institute of Quantum Computing and a current undergrad studying public policy, Alexander Chuchin saw firsthand how publicly-available evidence is inseparable from democracy. He volunteers with E4D's white papers, social media and founded an E4D club at Carleton to make sure evidence-based decision-making isn't the exception but the norm.
Stephanne is organizing science policy, research, and communication initiatives for E4D. She completed her PhD in physical oceanography at McGill University in 2016, where her research focused on ocean circulation and energetics. She has also published research in gravitational physics, applied physics, and Martian geochemistry, giving her a strong and varied background in physical sciences. Aside from her academic research, she strives to make science accessible and exciting to non-scientists, with a particular focus on the intersection of science and politics. She is a co-founder of Science Borealis, and has written about physics, environmental science, and Canadian politics for a range of organizations and publications.
