Hello SEA Members and Supporters! I wanted to introduce myself, as I am the newest addition to the SEA staff in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I will be taking on the project and office operations and ensuring that the office is providing members effective, efficient and timely support and resources. Furthermore, I will be providing backup support and strategy to make Summit 14 in April a high quality experience for members. I am excited about the opportunity to work with SEA and see the mission of the organization as being necessary and relevant to creating sustainable positive social change.
My enthusiasm and interest in SEA arises from 6 years of living abroad in Azerbaijan, Russia and China. While I worked in many different sectors (human rights organizations, social research and academia) I noticed certain commonalities: organizations were very insular, support from governments was nearly non-existent and many entrepreneurs failed due to lack of business knowledge. I realized that key to an organizations success was not only a savvy business sense, but also collaborative idea sharing, supporting policies and a wide network of like-minded people. In working with SEA I can realize my part in supporting an organization that I believe fills a needed gap in community and economic development. Therefore, I look forward to continuing the support of members, innovating new ways of expanding the network of social enterprise, and working with members to bring the mission of socially conscious business to the forefront of economic development.
