What are you most excited to accomplish in your new role?

What are 2-3 biggest lessons you’ve learned on your journey to becoming a leader at Edgility?

1) Leading with empathy and listening to the diversity of perspectives on our staff team is a gift and only makes us better and stronger.

2) We are a mission-led company, and as a leader, flexibility, nimbleness and the ability to work in gray spaces is critical to our success.

How do you hope to advance equity in your new role?

Clear and consistent practices around everything related to growth/development; culture; recognition and pay for all staff.

What are a few things you love about the communities you serve?

The people and their deep passion and dedication for the work they do and the communities they serve.  


Put your values to work. Act on equity.

We believe equity isn’t a box to check. It’s a daily action. Someone’s unique identity isn’t something to overcome–when paired with the right opportunity, it becomes one of their greatest professional assets. We exist to empower social impact organizations to recognize and overcome unconscious bias, racism and sexism so they can build a workforce that reflects and strengthens the communities they serve.
