I am the Co-Founder, Executive Director and Principal Investigator at Pairity - an evidence-based, community-driven platform facilitating refugee resettlement and community sponsorship, and monitoring and evaluation around integration and social cohesion.
Our goal is to mobilize the best aspects of community sponsorship models, inform scholarly research, and offer evidence for policymakers.
Our role in the launch of Welcome Corps, the first-ever large scale private refugee sponsorship program in the U.S., was profiled by The Globe & Mail, and our pilot in The Netherlands was covered by the lovely podcast People Fixing the World on BBC World Service.
