On working at FSG

“Prior to working at FSG, I had admired the firm’s work in the systems thinking and cross-sector collaboration spaces. My own experiences in capacity building had proved to me how valuable and necessary working across sectors is to create real social change. FSG’s commitment to doing this work with a focus on DEI was especially inspiring. This particular role offered me an amazing opportunity to unite my experience in and passion for social change work with my enthusiasm and training around supporting the development, growth, and fulfillment of others in their jobs. I’m excited to support the growth and development of all FSGers so that they can excel in the transformative work that they do as well as experience the personal growth that enables them to become social sector leaders.”
