As the Founder and Director of Leverage Lab and the co-Founder and Collaborative Innovation Partner in the Textile Lab for Circularity, Sara dedicates her time and energy addressing big, real-world systemic problems; this is only possible through disruptive collaboration and collective action. Specifically, Sara supports organizations in mitigating climate change through effective facilitation, B Corp consulting, and strategic planning for sustainability. By leveraging relationships and facilitating collaboration between businesses, government, academia, and civil society, Sara is hopeful that we can change the rules of the game for the better. Her passion for engaging people has gifted her with a vast network and an uncanny ability to know who to connect to and when; finding ways of working across silos and building collaborations that are in service to a wider agenda. Over the last several years, Sara has had the pleasure of working with: The City of Vancouver, Government of Alberta, Lululemon, H&M, Value Village, Salvation Army, Intuit, UBC, Surfrider Foundation, Social Innovation Generation (SIG), Intact Insurance, Vancouver Economic Commission, Vancouver Pride Society, United Way, Starbucks, and Hootsuite.
