Associate Director, Program ManagementPronouns: she / her
As Associate Director of Program Management, Alexandra designs and leads programs that provide advocates, organizers, artists, and their partners with the resources and community they need to sustain and scale their narrative change efforts. She currently manages the Voices for Economic Opportunity Incubator, a two-year program that supports 28 organizations across the U.S. to shift pervasive, negative narratives around poverty through training, research, and community-building. She has the pleasure of collaborating alongside the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and a diverse array of partners and teams to advance this incredibly timely and important work.
Prior to Purpose, Alexandra served as the Director of the Oslo Freedom Forum, an international advocacy program and event series that brings together human rights leaders and their allies to share strategies in nonviolent democratic transformation. In her time there, she collaborated with frontline activists to craft their stories for new audiences, developed relationships with diverse partners ranging from the City of Oslo to Twitter, and produced powerful multi-day summits in Taiwan, Mexico, South Africa, and New York.
Alexandra is a graduate of Vassar College and a creative at heart. Though she’s a classical pianist and vocalist by training, she is often ruining her hearing at punk shows or seeking out new folk musicians from her native North Carolina. She always welcomes recommendations for favorite playlists, venues, or composers.
