As the head of the Angus Reid Institute, Shachi uses data to consider today’s most critical questions. The non-partisan research she oversees reveals startling truths about how our values, beliefs, and priorities shape both the future of our country, and the current reality of our lives. In her frank and compelling talks, Kurl shares how to get to the heart of our major cultural, economic, and political shifts—and find common ground during times of upheaval. One of North America’s premier nonpartisan, nonprofit research and public polling organizations, the Institute helps debunk harmful myths and expand public knowledge in a meaningful way. Kurl, having spent the first half of her career as a political reporter, brings nearly two decades of public policy expertise to her role, and has even been sought by policymakers to testify before the House of Commons. Today, she is regularly called upon by the media for her unique insights, including on CBC’s At Issue, Canada’s most watched political panel.
