Dear Sadie Nash community,
I am writing to share the news that I will be leaving my role at Sadie Nash to work on the 2020 presidential campaign. The Board, staff and I are working to have a new Executive Director in place by early next year.
For the past six years, it has been my honor to lead this remarkable institution, building on the work of our visionary founder, Cecilia Clarke, collaborating with exceptionally talented and dedicated staff, faculty, deans and Board, and being inspired every day by our Nashers.
Since 2013, Sadie Nash has grown significantly, expanding to include middle school and college programming, adding Summer Institute sites in Brooklyn and Queens, and doubling the number of Nashers we serve every year. We have also worked hard to co-create a feminist workplace and feminist Board that operates in alignment with the values that infuse our programming. Sadie Nash is in great shape, in every way, and it’s been a privilege to contribute to this growth.
One of my greatest joys has been the considerable goodwill that Sadie Nash enjoys in the larger community. When I tell people where I work, I am always met with delight. “You work at Sadie Nash? I LOVE Sadie Nash!” is an exchange that I have at least once a week. And while I will be transitioning out of the Executive Director role, I will remain an active member of this loving and powerful community.
The talented folks at Community Resource Exchange are working closely with our Transition Committee of Board and staff members to run the search. You can check out the job description here. Please circulate widely; we are eager to have as rich a pool of talented candidates
Thank you for the tremendous support you have given me during my time as Executive Director. I look forward—with you—to finding and welcoming our next leader in the months ahead.
