Our latest Tamil Innovators features Saeed Selvam, an entrepreneur, former political candidate and was most recently a Policy Lead at Google where he fought harmful misinformation worldwide. He currently serves as the Managing Director of New West Public Affairs (a national government relations firm), making him one of the very few Tamils and people of colour in the profession.
Saeed began his career by happenstance in 2005 as a community organizer and then as an award-winning NGO founder; working on high-profile issues that captured international media attention. He's informally advised heads of government including the Obama Administration and influenced significant policy changes in Canada. Saeed ran for office in 2014 following his role as Campaign Manager at CivicAction under John Tory.
He continues to be a regular media contributor and business leader whose work has been featured in national news outlets like The Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, National Post, CTV, CP24, the Huffington Post and more.
