Karina Sieres

A committed woman, eternal optimist and outstanding project manager, Karina fosters organizational growth and wellness at work. With her compassionate leadership style, she ensures all of her projects make a tangible, positive and sustainable impact. She understands how to nurture a culture of excellence and trust, both within her teams and in the relationships she builds with her clients.

With over 15 years' experience, Karina has worked in public, corporate and government affairs for health and education sector organizations of varying sizes (Quebec Order of Nurses, McGill University Health Centre, Quebec Society for Schizophrenia). Through her role at the Québec Order of Nurses, Karina played a vital role in the crisis management unit, helping to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. She also contributed to the social acceptability of the proposed project to relocate the McGill University Health Centre’s Glen site.

Since 2021, Karina has lent her expertise to the Exponentiel team, drawing on her diverse range of skills in public affairs and strategic communications, issues and crisis management, and community services. She is particularly interested in organizations with social, environmental and educational missions. Her professional interests lie primarily in impactful communications, environment, social and governance (ESG) performance, and corporate social responsibility (CSR).

Karina holds a Masters in Literary Studies from Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) as well as a Bachelor in Communications from Concordia University.

She loves life at Exponentiel because…

It’s a stimulating work environment for so many reasons: the types of projects, the sectors we serve, the expertise we leverage to support our clients’ achievement of their objectives, and the teamwork we harness to get there!

What’s most important to her

Communications have the power to influence and transform. I’m especially passionate about environmental and social performance as a way to improve our collective well-being. Part of my role involves a collaboration with Chez Doris, an organization that offers a range of services and programs for vulnerable and homeless women, a cause that is particularly important to me. I'm also part of a practice community around climate-related communication.

Her Exponentiel attitude: dynamic responsiveness

Dynamic responsiveness represents many of the characteristics I value most, such as quick-wittedness, enthusiasm, determination, and a solution-oriented mindset.
