Ideas into action
I help policymakers, foundations, and social change practitioners develop mission-driven strategies for advancing progressive values through public policy, advocacy, and research.
Some recent projects
Hewlett Foundation - "Beyond Neoliberalism" Project (link)
In 2017, I worked with the Hewlett Foundation to develop a strategy for shifting the underlying ideas that produce "neoliberal" economic policy and political discourse.
Democracy Fund - learning retreat
In the summer of 2017, I designed a learning retreat for the Democracy Fund focusing on the theme of "Technology and Democracy".
REdesigning social policy (link)
In 2016, I designed and facilitated a workshop with the New America Family Centered Social Policy program, to help inform a rethink of how social policy can be transformed to address structural economic inequalities, and to do so in a more participatory, community-driven way.
Gettysburg Project on civic engagement (link)
From 2013-16, working with a team of academics, funders, and practitioners, we designed a series of convenings to help community organizers develop long-term strategies for expanding democratic participation and redressing structural inequalities.
Inclusive Economic Development in NYC (link)
From 2015-16 I worked with officials in NYC City Hall across a variety of agencies to develop a common framework for promoting equitable economic growth. See some of our work in the #OneNYC plan.
