Learning Lunch Series: Katherine Haver

We were fortunate to have Katherine Haver join us as a guest speaker at our learning lunch series this week. Katherine has a strong background in research and policy analysis globally. She recently moved to New York City from Victoria, Australia, where she helped design and implement a new statewide model of kinship care, led a project to develop therapeutic approaches for children and young people in out-of-home care, and led evaluations to help drive evidence-based policy within the province’s health and human services. Katherine shared her experiences contributing to the reform of the child and family services system in Victoria. Prior to this effort, Katherine worked in humanitarian policy and practice, focusing on humanitarian financing and the delivery of aid in insecure environments. She was a partner at Humanitarian Outcomes, where she helped grow the organization from a new consulting firm to a respected voice in the humanitarian field.
