Ali brings her passion for justice, equality, positive change, and the law to her work with Be the Change Group. With significant knowledge of both quantitative and qualitative research methods, and experience transcribing, coding, and analyzing data, including constructing data sets and running linear regressions, Ali supports all phases of data collection and analysis.
She has previously worked as a research assistant on a project targeting sexual violence on Canadian campuses. In her own studies, Ali has conducted research on various topics including inequality in political participation, climate change and public opinion, and LGBTQ+ issues. The foremost of these projects was her Honours thesis, which examined the gender stereotyping of issues discussed in Canada’s House of Commons. As a legal intern at a boutique securities litigation firm, Ali conducted research for lawyers, assisted with administrative tasks, and designed marketing materials and communications tools. In addition, she has experience studying and producing political campaigns; developing empowerment and mentorship programs; and researching, developing, and implementing performance evaluation.
