Heather Russek

Director of Policy Innovation

Heather has spent the last 10+ years working on large-scale initiatives and, more recently, on applying human-centered design. As Director of Policy Innovation, Heather provides strategic direction, leading the day-to-day operations of PIP and sparking partnerships across sectors.

Prior to joining BII+E, Heather worked at St. Joseph’s Health Centre as the Director of Corporate Strategy and Initiatives. She brings with her experiences ranging from management consulting,
to program management and oversight, to project management.

Heather believes that using novel methodologies to engage people will enable policy innovation and is hoping to test new models of collaboration and innovation at BII+E.

Heather has a Bachelor of Science from Queen’s University, an MBA from the DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University, and a Master of Design in Strategic Foresight and Innovation
from OCAD University.

Heather has two little kids that keep her busy and wishes she could find more time for training for triathlons and working on art projects.
