Lindsay Sheridan - Senior Advisor of Policy & Parliamentary Affairs

By: RC Intern Published: 14/01/2022

Lindsay Sheridan loves to engage with new communities, spaces, and stories – finding comfort in learning new things constantly. When she is not working hard as our Senior Advisor of Policy & Parliamentary Affairs, you can find her consumed by a book, decompressing in nature, defeating her family at board games, cooking up a storm, or jamming to vinyl. 

To prepare for the professional world, Lindsay attended the University of Waterloo where she earned her honours bachelor’s degree in Legal Studies with a minor in Peace and Conflict Studies followed by a Master’s in Peace and Conflict Studies. Her master’s degree included courses that involved analyzing global and interpersonal conflicts while framing systemic change through engagement with government, civil society, and the private sector. Her studies set her up for success as a staffer on Parliament Hill and now at Results Canada. 

Some of Lindsay’s most memorable experiences since university include participating as a mentor for a HeForShe equithon, creating an empath curriculum for young students in the Waterloo region, being a teaching assistant for a conflict resolution class, updating research on the role women play in peacebuilding processes and engaging in the International Law Summer Institute at the Balsillie School of International Affairs. 

For Lindsay, the best part about Results is the people and the impact they make by taking action. “Our volunteers take time out of their busy lives because they care about changing the world and our global partners have the expertise and experience to make it happen. Collectively, Results is able to make so much impact in the world because of the people who care.”
