Hailey Brewer

Senior Partnerships Director

Hailey is a Senior Director of Partnerships for IDEO.org’s U.S.-based work to design for health, wealth, and care, with and for communities impacted by structural racism and discrimination.

She has led relationships with Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Bezos Family Foundation to apply design to the questions of shifting power and narratives as we reimagine and build ecosystems of care around families, children, and caregivers. Prior to IDEO.org, Hailey co-led the Public Sector practice at IDEO, where she advised federal government agencies on building cultures of innovation and designing human-centered public services. Hailey’s early career internships with women’s labor and reproductive rights organizations in Chile and Nicaragua inspired her interest in design as a way to bridge insight to action for social change.

Hailey is an Aspen Institute First Movers Fellowship alum. She holds a B.A. in International Relations with a minor in Latin American history and cultures from Tufts University and Universidad de Chile. As a parent to two young children, she’s humbly learning new things every day about how to be in right relationship with each other.
