If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?
Huma Abedin – she often takes the unglamorous role of getting the work done behind the scenes and has weathered many storms – and always comes out the other side.
What motivates you to create social impact?
The good in the world – the drive to do better & be better as humans – exists; the responsibility is on all of us to harness that good to make the most impact.

Host Site Project
The New Sector Senior Summer Fellow will be placed on the Solutions team at YearUp. The Year Up Solutions Team is a practice area of the National Program Team and is responsible for managing our products, or our courses of study, including ensuring consistent implementation across the organization; ensuring ongoing market relevance of our products; and developing new products based on market demand. We partner closely with the Corporate Engagement team to support the selling of our products to our employer partners and with Local and National program teams to ensure successful product implementation. We are in the process of defining and creating our product catalog which will be our single point of record and reference for our courses of study and training being offered for our students in all of our markets. We need someone who can help to establish a governance and review process; design, build and develop our short course library; design and build our knowledge management system for the catalog and any related tools needed for local implementation; and facilitate the development of marketing collateral and support materials for each product or course of study.
