Career aspirations

I’d like to spend the next phase of my career driving more-innovative and riskier work within the nonprofit advocacy space. That could include creating “labs” within major organizations to test strategies (e.g. finance campaigning), moving into more-senior or executive roles where I can increase my influence, or starting my own consulting operation.

Why an MBA?

I want to learn how to solve bigger and more-complex problems, whether that’s tackling climate change or building a more democratic society. In the coming years, I look forward to seeing the world through radically different perspectives and learning new tools to tackle complexity and create change.
