If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?

I’d have brunch with Leslie Knope (from Parks and Recreation), because I find her unwavering optimism and commitment to public service inspiring. She also has excellent taste in waffles so she’d pick a great brunch place.

What motivates you to create social impact?

I believe that everyone deserves opportunities to success. I’m dedicated to eradicating systemic inequalities that block individuals and communities from accessing the resources they need to grow and flourish.

Host Site Project

The New Sector Fellow will focus on program marketing and outreach. With the goal of increasing awareness of Cara’s services, the Fellow will focus on improving our story-telling ability through various communications channels. The Fellow will then train and support staff members to effectively communicate our work. The project will begin by understanding and evaluating how we currently tell stories, move to researching best practices, and conclude by coordinating and managing the marketing plans.
