Charity E.

United States


I have an enduring curiosity and passion for economic development, social justice, and human rights, owing much to my experience working with communities in some of the most complex and under-resourced regions abroad and in the United States. I am also passionate about efficiency, effectiveness, data, and project management in the social impact sector. I lead with a growth mindset and love to collaborate with people to make sure that our solutions and services are making a real difference in the world.
