“The energy at IW is palpable and has a gravitational force all of its own. I appreciate the opportunity to connect those attracted to its pull with relevant and material ways to join the movement.”
“Baltimore made me. Baltimore is me. This city deserves my time, energy, and love. It is a wealth of opportunity waiting to be discovered. Everyone deserves access to a great quality of life doing work they can be proud of in the communities they love.”
“Baltimore is my home, and to be useful in my hometown is part of my personal purpose. My role at IW uniquely aligns my skills and passions in a way that allows me to carry out that purpose. And working alongside a team of amazing people is icing on the cake!”
“We are working hard to create better outcomes for people through our initiatives, and I am confident that our efforts are making a positive impact on Baltimore’s residents. Every day we come closer and closer to achieving our goals, and I am excited about what comes next.”
“I’m thrilled to be working to cultivate a broad understanding of the continuum of capital that supports social entrepreneurship, builds community wealth, and narrows the racial wealth chasm in Baltimore City and beyond.”
“I believe social entrepreneurship is one of the most sustainable ways to solve deep-rooted, complex problems. I am honored to work with incredibly passionate entrepreneurs who are doing just that in a way that is unique to Baltimore, its culture, and its people.”
“What I love about working with social entrepreneurs is that their origin stories are never the same, but they have found themselves in this space. They want to do something bigger than themselves and tackle challenges in diverse ways for the sake of economic growth in Baltimore City.”
“I believe that if you really want to create a better ecosystem in Baltimore, we have to fully support our grassroots entrepreneurs. I look forward to being hands-on and meeting the people where they are.”
“My role as Director of Development allows me to make a meaningful contribution to the local community. I’m excited to take on this opportunity and ensure that my work positively impacts the lives of those around me.”
“It’s not really work when being apart of a mission like IW’s. My heart has always resided in Baltimore City and to be able to do this work and work with entrepreneurs and communities is why I show up each day with the same passion and commitment of our team and the SEs in our Pipeline.”
“I believe that people – of all stations, backgrounds, and talents – need one another. Social entrepreneurs (SE’s) can often use positive, skilled business coaches; mentors often grow from SE resources, strengths and vision. We need one another to help heal old wounds and build true community.”
“I am proud to be part of an organization that is taking action against one of the most pressing issues facing Baltimore today. I know that together, we can create real change”
