In addition to supporting individual authors in developing articles, case studies, and full-length manuscripts, I have made these things happen.

The Entrepreneurial Feminist Forum

In November 2017, I co-produced The Entrepreneurial Feminist Forum at the Ontario College of Art and Design. A collaboration between Feminists at Work and LiisBeth, the event was sponsored by OCAD U and the City of Toronto and gathered 100+ feminists of all genders to discuss and share methods for doing feminist business practice. The 2nd annual EFF will be December 2018. Write me to learn more at

Take The Lead

From 2015-2016, as Director of Strategy, I helped build Take The Lead during its early startup years, establishing core programs, products, and services and building key partnerships. In this role, I co-developed and scaled a new leadership development program focused on gender parity in leadership engaging 30 trainers across the country and serving 500+ women. For Take The Lead, I also wrote regularly on leadership, collective leadership, and gender justice.

The Lean Enterprise Institute

From 2011-2015 at LEI, I served as founding editor of The Lean Post, a new media platform featuring the voices of the lean community. In this role, I was proud to work closely with the industrial anthropologist John Shook and my editor, Tom Ehrenfeld. From 2013-2014, I was privileged to lead communications on LEI’s Lean Product and Process Development (LPPD) initiative (creating new knowledge at the intersection of lean, lean user design, lean startup, and design thinking) working with Jim Morgan, former head of product at Ford.

Ideas That Move

From 2012-2013, I produced three in-person retreats and two webinars on the theme of more effectively moving ideas from concept to launch. These events supported 75+ women entrepreneurs and artists with original programming combining yoga, play, and participatory leadership. As part of this retreat series, I delivered two leadership events—one webinar and one 2-day retreat—with the Alumnae Association of Smith College.

The Berkana Institute

At Berkana, I developed and edited longform articles on collective leadership and living systems thinking. I also studied with Walk Out Walk On co-author Deborah Frieze and other leading thinkers on what makes organizations and communities resilient in the face of massive systems change.

The New Prosperity Initiative (NPi)

As “solutions journalism” was on the rise, I was lucky to be part of a small team in Boston that dedicated itself to community storytelling and knowledge sharing in the spirit of sharing solutions to civic problems. Interested in telling the stories of a new kind of prosperity for the 21st century, we co-founded The New Prosperity Initiative, a nonprofit media organization dedicated to knowledge sharing in the social justice space. As Co-Founder/Managing Editor from 2008-2011, with a team of writers and volunteers, I produced 80+ articles featuring for-profit and nonprofit social justice leaders in Boston and across the country. NPi also organized and facilitated dialogues on race and social justice, health and well-being, food systems, and education. This led to workshops on “rethinking career design for social change” at The Harvard Graduate School of Education, See Jane Do’s Passion-Into-Action Conference, and The Kauffman Foundation. We were recognized in O, The Oprah Magazine, as part of its feature on “Tomorrow’s Leaders” in 2010.


I frequently speak to groups about the future of work from a collective leadership perspective. I’ve given talks, facilitated conversations, or participated on panels at NYU, Yale, Harvard School of Public Health, See Jane Do’s Passion Into Action Conference, SHE Summit, In Good Company, YWCA-Mankato, and more.
