Katie – Senior Vice President, Growth & Impact
Katie helps forward-thinking companies overcome the challenges they face in accessing Opportunity Talent as our Senior Vice President, Growth & Impact. With her extensive background in diversity hiring, advocacy, public policy, consulting, and organizational development, Katie is a recognized expert in developing creative solutions that meet business needs. Katie discovered Year Up through a volunteer opportunity to mentor a young adult who exemplified the qualities she was seeking in hiring entry-level talent: grit, professionalism, and an enthusiasm to learn and grow. Through this relationship, Katie was inspired to devote her career to connecting this exceptional pipeline of talent to employers seeking these same qualities. With her mentee at the forefront of her mind, Katie is committed to providing her clients with access to this skilled and determined, yet often overlooked, source of talent.
Katie shares, “The Opportunity Divide is a reality that shaped my own career trajectory as a young person. Having served our mission since 2013 as a mentor, employer, and now as a strategic advisor, I am excited to partner with other forward-thinking employers seeking to enhance their own diversity hiring strategies.”
