I’m Emily Pasnak-Lapchick, an activist passionate about co-powering with people like you to create social impact. I recently finished a Masters of Arts in Social Innovation at the University of San Diego where I used systems thinking and human-centered design to build solutions to global issues such as climate change, slavery, and sustainable global supply chains. Currently, I am supporting a Strategic Co-Futuring Process for four initiatives at Open Society Foundations.
I believe success is only achieved with intersectionality and partnership. I am skilled at identifying the unique strengths of individuals, supporting strong leaders who are the experts of their narratives, and bringing people together around a common cause.
I frequently travel and speak at conferences, special events, and schools on topics related to social and environmental justice. Learn more about my key speaking events here.
When I’m not trying to change the world and the way you think, I’m cooking up delicious vegan recipes, seeking out cutting-edge social enterprises, and listening to jazz influencers like Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong.
I love connecting with people to figure out how we can work together. If you feel the same way, contact me below!
“I think the importance of doing activist work is precisely because it allows you to give back and to consider yourself not as a single individual who may have achieved whatever but to be a part of an ongoing historical movement.”
– Angela Davis
