Zoe Ritchie

Special Projects Assistant, NEXT Canada

Zoe joins the NEXT Canada team as a summer intern. As a Special Projects Assistant, she plays an active role in facilitating NEXT’s move to a new office space and supporting NEXT programs and the extraordinary founders in them.  

Currently, she is completing her Honours Bachelor of Arts at the University of Toronto. Her research interests include medical ethics, health care law and driving equity and inclusion in the Canadian health care system. Bringing experience in public policy, community engagement and inclusive workplace practices to the team Zoe is excited to learn more about the dynamic TO tech, AI, and entrepreneurship scene.  

Zoe is also a passionate advocate for empowering young woman to get involved in politics and advocate for changes in policies across Canadian campuses. She is excited to begin volunteering with Pride at Work this year on the 2019 VentureOut Conference– connecting LGBTQA+ people in tech to career opportunities, role models, and each other.
