Network Leaders

Network Leader_Erika Seth Davies

We exist to unite and uplift the leadership network. The Network consists of people on the frontlines—community practitioners, place-based foundation leaders, and impact investors—who have participated in our programs and connect over a shared agenda. We build opportunities for collaboration across the Network and seek out ways to resource their efforts to build equitable economies.
