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.
