Kathleen Walsh appointed as Operations Coordinator at the Rideau Institute

The Rideau Institute is pleased to announce Kathleen Walsh has been appointed to the position of Operations Coordinator.

Kathleen Walsh will lead many of the Rideau Institute’s research, advocacy and consulting initiatives. She brings to the position training in public policy management and a strong personal interest in foreign affairs and politics – especially the participation of young women in Parliament.

“Kathleen represents a new generation of policy activists,” said Steven Staples, President of the Rideau Institute. “I’m confident that she will infuse our organization with new approaches required to meet the challenges of today’s political environment.”

She joined the Rideau Institute in 2011, as Donor Services Officer, in which capacity she provided support to the Institute’s donors and contributed to its social media campaigns. In addition, she has improved the Institute’s popular Progressive Policy Internship program.

Kathleen Walsh is a recent graduate of the Public Affairs and Policy Management Program at the Arthur Kroeger College of Public Affairs at Carleton University, specializing in international development and resource management.

She began her work in the public policy sphere as a summer student intern at the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, and continues her voluntary role on the executive board of the Carleton University Equal Voice chapter, an organization dedicated to increasing women’s participation in politics.
