Nedra Ginwright, M.S

Chief Flourish Officer

Nedra Ginwright is our Chief Flourish Officer. She has a Master’s Degree in Marriage, Family and Child Counseling from California State University East Bay. Nedra previously co-founded and led Leadership Excellence, an organization which provided leadership development to African American youth. During her twenty-five years of working with youth of color, Nedra has seen the impact of internalized racism on youths’ physical, spiritual, and emotional health. She has also seen the profound individual and community impacts of racial healing and personal transformation. These firsthand experiences drive Nedra, who firmly believes that healing from harm makes a thriving community. She learned from her mother the power of stepping up as a leader, working on behalf of the voiceless, and getting involved to change social conditions. Nedra received the Powerful Women Making a Difference Ebony Magazine Award in 2009 and is a 2015 Echoing Green fellow.

 

Nedra loves decorating, hosting theme parties and makes a mean Sangria!
