New leadership is constantly emerging in organizations —how can we find ways to celebrate, honor, and document important stories of shared leadership and healthy transitions? As our current Co-Directors, Ana Conner and Kiyomi Fujikawa, prepare to transition out of their roles in early 2024 and two new leaders join us, we’re reflecting on a long lineage of transformative leadership that has shaped and guided our organization over the years. 

We’re excited to have some impactful folks from throughout our organization’s history speak to the power of shared leadership. We’ll be hearing from one of Third Wave’s founders Amy Richards, Program Officer at the Foundation for a Just Society and former Third Wave Board Member Paulina Helm-Hernandez, the current Co-Chairs of our Advisory Council Loan Tran and Adjoa Sankofia Tetteh, former Director of Third Wave Rye Young, and Executive Director at New York Foundation and former Third Wave Board Member Rickke Mananzala. We’ll also be hearing from a few current Third Wave staff members, including Communications Officer Monica Trinidad and Development Associate Jillian Jacobs, as they reflect on how both they and our organization has grown and shifted in the last five years.
