“We have run statewide and national political campaigns, led non-profit operations, advised and crafted global policy, managed emergency departments, lead international medical missions, managed million- dollar projects and, notably, we are former US presidential appointees, heads of record labels to Grammy award-winning artists and have helped curate art and culture at public institutions including the Embassy of Haiti. Our experiences mirror that of the members of the network.”
