Kalie is a social impact researcher and educator, working at the intersection of public and private for the last decade. Her prior work has explored activism practices and policies of corporations through corporate social responsibility and ESG, with a particular interest in the role of technology corporations and platforms for use in social movements. Her prior roles have focused on management research, inclusive community engagement, project management, and advocacy communications for academic and nonprofit organizations, including Columbia Business School, Wharton School of Business, Temple University, Urban Affairs Coalition, and The Food Trust. Originally hailing from California, Kalie holds an undergraduate degree from the University of California Santa Barbara in Communications and Sociology, as well as a minor in Professional Writing. She served for two years as an AmeriCorps public servant before enrolling in graduate school at the University of Pennsylvania’s Fels Institute of Government, where she received a Masters in Public Administration. She is actively involved in mentoring high school girls, and advocating for civic engagement and hunger alleviation. When she’s not at work, you can find her playing with her two cats Nick & Stevie, trying to make a dent in her ever-growing reading list (and always open to recommendations to make it longer), and competing in various running events and triathlons (just for fun).
