Julie is known as a connector—of diverse people and new ideas—with an inquisitive mind and generous spirit. With over 25 years of leadership experience in business, higher education and non-profit settings, Julie has:
- Advised business leaders to look more closely at the true impacts of maximizing profits and consider what concepts around sustainable development, societal impact, human rights and fair-trade mean to their industries.
- Innovated at the front lines by helping initiatives like the United Nations Global Compact advance from an idea to a movement and helped to move the dialogue on corporate citizenship from sideline seminars at the World Economic Forum to center stage at Davos.
- Designed talent development programs that provide broader context and new tools to help develop the personal and organizational resilience necessary for leadership and global citizenship and delivered mindfulness trainings to corporate and university leadership teams, individuals, and families.
- Collaborated with business educators and others across disciplines such as the liberal arts, technology, neuroscience and design in re-thinking the scope, content and instructional strategies that will re-shape higher education to promote a global mindset and have broader benefits for the world.
- Leveraged the best thinking in management education to enhance the skills of social entrepreneurs and public-sector leaders.
Julie holds an M.Ed. from the University of South Carolina and a B.A. from Texas Christian University. She is a Fellow at the Institute for Sustainable Social Change at Prescott College and a certified mindfulness meditation instructor. Julie serves on the boards of Teaching Matters and the Rye Nature Center.
