Elodie Le Grand – President and Lead Consultant

Holding a Masters in Political Science from the University of Québec in Montréal and a Specialized Graduate Diploma in Management and Sustainable Development from HEC Montréal, Elodie has almost 20 years of professional experience in project management and protection of human rights. Having worked in nearly 20 countries on behalf of various international organizations (UN agencies, International Committee of the Red Cross, International Bureau for Children’s Rights) on sometimes highly complex projects, Elodie is fully able of adapt to different contexts, to quickly understand the issues and risks, and to identify solutions that meet the needs. In Canada, she has worked for the private sector, the public sector (Ministry of Defence) and for non-profit organizations. These experiences in various sectors of intervention allowed her to develop a unique approach when implementing the projects she is managing.

Along her consulting work, she kept strong links with academia, acting a lecturer on sustainable development and international cooperation for Université de Montréal. She is the co-author of a case study on the development of an ethical procurement policy by the International Committee of the Red Cross, published by Ivey. The case is available in English and simplified Chinese.

Since 2018, she acts as a voluntary member for the Independent Review Panel for Accountable Now. With her peers, she reviews and provides a quality assessment of accountability reports submitted by members against the 12 accountability commitments.

Elodie has also joined boards of directors, bringing expertise on governance and accountability and is active in the programming committee of the Québec Association for Impact Assessment.

Consentia also provides support to community-based organisations whose missions are the protection of human rights, especially women and children ‘s rights, in Montréal and abroad.
