About Jennifer

Jennifer Hollett is a leader in tech, media and politics.

She’s worked at Twitter Canada as the head of news and government, and uses media and social media to connect people to politics and community issues. As an award winning broadcast journalist, she’s covered stories across the city with CBC, CTV, and MuchMusic.    

Jennifer has a Master of Public Administration from Harvard University, and served on the boards of directors at both Toronto Environmental Alliance and Social Planning Toronto. She has also sat on the advisory committee of No Jets Toronto and worked as an Associate on Civic Technology with the Atkinson Foundation exploring how technology can improve government and public engagement. In 2013, she delivered a TEDxTalk in the Distillery District called “How to Hate Politics,” which was really about how to remain engaged in an era of political cynicism. In the last federal election she ran as a candidate for the NDP.
