RADIUS is excited to welcome 2 consultants who will help guide us in our Partnerships and Business Development strategies over the next year – Kim Howson and Katie Miller! Each of these impressive changemakers arrives to RADIUS with a unique breadth and depth of experience — learn more about Katie and Kim below.
Katie supports RADIUS’ business development strategy and implementation, discovering opportunities to expand our impact. Katie brings a business background and a passion to see business used for good. Having previously held roles as the Director of Operations and Finances, the Director of Learning Development, and the Managing Director of a co-working and incubation space focused on inspiring action for a more just and sustainable world, she believes in the power of community and collaboration.
In addition to her work with RADIUS, Katie is a Board Member of Impact Hub Global and supports the design and delivery of digital programs with Future of Good.

Currently living on the unceded and traditional territory of the Algonquin Anishinaabeg people, Katie is of mixed European and Algonquin heritage. In her down time, you can find Katie relaxing behind her knitting needles or piano.
Kim is a systems disruptor who seeks out opportunities to work across all sectors to solve complex social problems. With experience in the non-profit, public, and private sectors, Kim seeks to create opportunities for multiple perspectives to come together to build more inclusive, resilient, and equitable systems.
