Tracey Evans

Director, Global Partnerships

Tracey holds a Bachelor’s degree in International Development and Global Studies from the University of Ottawa and a Master’s degree in International Conflict Resolution and Mediation from Tel Aviv University. She is currently pursuing a Doctorate of Education, International Educational Leadership and Policy at the University of Toronto where she is researching the educational experiences of autistic learners in Ottawa, Canada during COVID-19 school closures.

Tracey worked for Aga Khan Foundation Canada in Ottawa from 2015-2020 as an Education Program Manager, managing a portfolio of gender-responsive education programs across East and West Africa and in Central Asia that cut across the lifelong ladder of learning, from early childhood education through to post-secondary education. In January 2021, Tracey joined Right To Play as Director of Global Partnerships.

She is constantly inspired by the learners, teachers and parents she gets to work with, and firmly believes that education is the world’s greatest asset for promoting gender equality.

Tracey loves cooking, curling, and is always more than happy to invite her Golden Retriever Birken to make guest appearances on Teams calls!
