Kearie Daniel
Chief Executive Officer/ Executive Director

Kearie Daniel is a senior non-profit leader, community advocate, communications strategist, and thought leader.

Kearie has over 20 years of experience leading strategic initiatives across multiple sectors including healthcare as a lead communications advisor for various initiatives within Cancer Care Ontario (Ontario Health), the non-profit sector, and the child welfare sector, where Kearie led strategic communications and community engagement for the provincial initiative One Vision One Voice community initiative to address the overrepresentation of Black children in the child welfare system, at the Ontario Association of Children’s Aid Societies.

As the co-founder and inaugural Chief Executive Officer/Executive Director of Parents of Black Children, one of the fastest-growing non-profits in Ontario, Kearie has spearheaded and created the organization’s strategic vision, mandate, and approach and has leveraged her experience with systems navigation in cancer care and child welfare system to implement the methodology in support of Black families engaged within the education system. This has changed the landscape of support for Black parents by formalizing the historic practice of Black community advocacy within the education sector. As a ‘learning futurist’, Kearie works to challenge existing educational pedagogy and encourages education leaders to re-imagine education design. In this capacity, Kearie also conceptualized and led the development of PoBC’s Omo Africentric Campus, the first Africentric virtual campus in Canada accessible for Black children and families- offering an alternative, reimagining of how electronic platforms can be utilized in the education space.

In addition to her work within non-profit leadership, Kearie has anchored her career as a thought leader and writer on race, motherhood, and education issues. With a Masters’s degree in Broadcast Journalism and a Bachelor’s in Mass Communications, Kearie began her career as a Journalist working as a freelance associate producer and assignment editor for NBC News, London Bureau.

In 2017 Kearie created the Podcast and Blog, Woke Mommy Chatter, a space to combat the invisibilizing of the Black motherhood experience and to shed light on the Black parenting journey. Kearie also writes about race, equity, and the Black motherhood experience for various publications, including Today’s Parents, CBC Parent, Flare, and Chatelaine.
