Lori Clement

Why I joined... “Hi Everyone, I’m excited to be on this journey with you. I’ve been in the nonprofit sector for 13 years. I’m currently an executive recruiter for nonprofits and I’ve made it my mission to support leaders of color across the country with securing roles leading institutions where they are well compensated and fully supported in creating lasting impact. All of you are my people and I’m honored to get to know you and do great work together.”

brianne patrice

Why I joined... “I am a black woman and female founder. I also work for and sit on the board of Sad Girls Club, a non-profit rooted in shifting the mental health stigma within black and brown communities. Since being a part of Sad Girls Club and having now founded my own for-profit company, Twenty Nine Thirty, I've seen and experienced firsthand how hard it is for black women to secure the funding they need and deserve. Joining this organization will allow me to serve as a dot connector— helping women like myself and Elyse Fox receive the support needed to aid their intended mission.”
