News partnerships lead

Hannah Wise is the news partnerships lead for the Brown Institute’s Local News Lab. Previously, she bridged the gap between journalism and tech at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation where she led a multi-disciplinary team that successfully launched dozens of interactive, data-driven news projects that ranged from local newsroom collaborations to Canada’s federal election. Prior to CBC, she worked with top tier artists and venues, booking major concerts and events.

Hannah is also a certified solution-focused coach with a strong interest in psychology, equity and inclusion. Her work is centered on making journalism a fulfilling and healthy career option, especially for people from historically marginalized backgrounds.

Outside of work, Hannah loves to read, be outside in nature, and have dance parties with her twins. She is also a volunteer mentor for women and non-binary people working in the news industry.
