Counsel is excited to share that Meera Mahadeo is joining our team as a Project Specialist.

Meera first joined Counsel in May of this year as a Summer Research Associate – and we are now proud to welcome her as a permanent member of the team!

Prior to joining Counsel, Meera worked for not-for-profit organizations and educational institutions at the national and international level. She was the Co-Chair of Queen’s Feminist Leadership in Politics (QFLIP), Canada’s largest undergraduate, equity-seeking organization dedicated to the intersectional empowerment of women and their allies within positions of higher political leadership. Additionally, Meera is the former National Outreach Director for Girl Up Canada, the Canadian division of Girl Up Campaign, based out of the U.N Foundation in Washington. In these roles, Meera led stakeholder outreach, launched brand strategies, facilitated community consultations, and leveraged social media strategies.

Meera holds an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Studies and Global Development from Queen’s University, and is currently completing her Certificate in Business Administration from the Smith School of Business.  

“Meera has been an invaluable member of our team over the past several months. We are delighted to add her professionalism, impeccable research skills, government and stakeholder relations experience, and creative flair to our growing team,” notes Caroline Pinto, Founding Partner at Counsel. 

In her new role, Meera will bring her skills to support the firm’s national team, providing direct client support and helping to coordinate Counsel’s brand across the country.
