Everyone can participate in cultivating the good in our world. This fact is both terrifyingly large and absolutely actionable – and Kristine loves a good action item. Kristine is the CEO of StartingBloc, a global Fellowship community that believes that the world needs better leadership. She sees leadership development as one of the strongest points of leverage across all systemic challenges, from public health to climate change to social justice. She is a trained public speaker and facilitator, working with groups from 10-130 at a time. Kristine holds a Masters of International Studies specializing in Rural Development, and prior to joining StartingBloc, worked in international development for six years, founding and leading teams across the African continent and in India.
As a woman in leadership at a young age (she co-founded her first company at 22) Kristine holds a deep conviction in the possibility of female leadership, in the need to cultivate space for women's voices, and in the importance of a nuanced conversation about who gets to define womanhood. She is guided by the voices of Dorothy Day, Leymah Gbowee, Rebecca Solnit, and bell hooks. You'll find "+1 for Destroying the Patriarchy" as one of two sentences in her LinkedIn profile.
