Civic Social Innovation Lead
Erin finds her passion where people, community, and environment intersect. She has over 11 years of experience working with municipalities to help them improve housing outcomes, adapt to growth or decline, and address climate change. These challenges are often complex, far reaching, and require a diverse set of input from community actors. As a result, Erin’s work centres around convening conversation and catalyzing action.
Erin is also a fellow of the Alberta Energy Futures Lab (EFL), and has previously worked at non-profits including SmartGrowthBC and the Pembina Institute. Erin holds a Master’s Degree in Urban and Regional Planning from Simon Fraser University.
Erin leads in the development of Urban Matters’ portfolio of civic social innovation initiatives. She helps local governments move towards positive social and community outcomes by using organizational change management, partnership brokering, leadership development, and social enterprise incubation.
She is an avid world traveler, cyclist, and urbanist, and is based in Kelowna BC.
