Prior to joining Acertitude, Sarah was a project director for the Global Affairs Canada Peace and Stabilization Operations Office in New Orleans, Louisiana. There, she worked to establish a global dataset on the state of transitional justice and human rights, while also recruiting and supervising researchers, training employees in social scientific coding, and writing proposals for key stakeholders.
