Rudolf Russell du Toit

Executive Lead, Global Commission on Evidence to Address Societal Challenges
Rudolf is helping the Global Commission on Evidence to Address Societal Challenges (the Evidence Commission) to formalize and strengthen Canada's evidence-support systems, and to enhance and leverage the global evidence architecture. This includes developing and executing strategies; leading engagements with Canadian federal, provincial, and territorial governments, as well as foreign governments (Australia, UK, select other countries), the United Nations, and potential funders; supporting pilots of innovative evidence-coordination mechanisms; building the case for investment in the global evidence architecture; and tracking progress. Rudolf brings diverse prior experience leading and advising on organizational transformation and strategy across the private, not-for-profit, and (most recently) public sectors. He holds a BA in Political Science & Economics from the University of Victoria and a Master of Industrial Relations & Human Resources from the University of Toronto, during the latter of which he conducted research on diverse team performance funded by Canada's Social Sciences & Humanities Research Council.
