Tavia Grant has worked at The Globe and Mail for 13 years, where she has focused largely on workplace and employment issues. In the decade she worked in the Report on Business, she covered topics ranging from inflation and global trade to income inequality, currency markets, long-term unemployment and labour migration.
Her 2014 coverage of the health risks from asbestos exposures garnered a National Newspaper Award nomination, a Best in Business award and the Canadian Online Publishing Association award for best content, and put pressure on the federal government to change its policies about the deadly mineral.
She has since covered subjects such as human trafficking, workplace fatalities and the gender pay gap. Last year, she received the Landsberg Award in recognition of her coverage of women’s equality issues.
She has a degree in international development and Spanish.
