Meg supports Root Change and its partners – international NGOs, movements, foundations, civil society organizations, and more – to identify, develop, and apply innovative tools and approaches to contribute to local solutions for local problems. She is responsible for providing management and direction to the Community Independence Initiative and the Center for Peer Driven Change at Root Change. Before Root Change, Meg worked at Pact managing and overseeing the Global WORTH program – an appreciative-based savings group model for women’s economic and social empowerment. Meg got her start in Tanzania, supporting the community-based programming at Jifundishe. She holds a MA in Intercultural Leadership & Management from SIT Graduate Institute and a BA (Hon.) in Political Science & African Studies from the University of Toronto. In her spare time, Meg can be found daydreaming about her next trip while trying a new gluten-free, dairy-free baked good recipe.
