Kimberly Bowman

Senior Projects Manager

Kimberly is a Senior Projects Manager at the Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship (BII+E). She leads complex projects, working with multi-disciplinary teams to thoughtfully design and execute projects that blend strong methodologies and collaborative partnerships to deliver actionable and impactful findings. 

Kimberly is interested in the role that human centered design and systematic inquiry can play in enabling better decision-making, especially in fast-moving or hard-to-define areas. She’s also interested in the role that research can play in seeking out under-valued perspectives and using data for good. Kimberly loves rolling up her sleeves to help understand or solve complex problems and knows that you can go much further together than alone.

Prior to joining BII+E, Kimberly worked in technical and leadership roles in respected charities in Canada and internationally. She has worked in technical and leadership roles with Oxfam GB’s Campaigns & Policy and Programme Strategy & Impact Team, including time with the economic empowerment team in Asia.  She has also served as the Director of Strategy for a national youth charity and led advocacy and public engagement for a leading Canadian development organization.

Kimberly has earned a Masters of Science in Social Research Methods from the London School of Economics and an Honours BA in International Development Studies from McGill.
