Employment and Workforce Development
After years of working federal, state, and local government and campaigns, Erin Stevens felt a sense of responsibility to tap into her professional networks to extend professional opportunities to other people of color. She observed that she was among a handful of women of color in leadership in her field, while knowing there are plenty of qualified leaders who could fulfill those roles. Diversity in the workplace became a cause she championed to develop improved policies and outcomes in public service.
