Alumni Spotlight: Rachel Dawn Davis

MeandPrezWJCTell us a little bit about yourself:

I’m a Sustainability Strategist, consulting for an array of clients interested in building their brand upon a foundation of organization and clarity. I’m interested in community movements, media and music. The power of the internet, a tool which connects a broad ecosystem of change makers and fundraisers for social change, astounds me, almost as much as our molecular make up.   

What brought you to Milano?

I became an activist while thrust into a legal assistant job at a 250+ year old law firm.  I was caring for my elderly grandfather in my hometown, where my mother also grew up, commuting from Teaneck to Manhattan and then Franklin Park to Wall Street. I built diverse coalitions at work and in New Jersey, using communications and marketing to drive awareness campaigns and electoral outcomes during the 2006 midterm elections.

A Tribunal on Failed Governance: Climate Change, Inequality, and Jobless Growth

Back in February 2015 The Milano School hosted a Tribunal on global governance failures regarding increasing levels of social and economic inequality, unequal and jobless economic growth, and climate change. The Tribunal also launched an alliance between the Ford Foundation and the Milano School. The Tribunal shed light on the way that conferences such as Habitat III or International Climate Change Conferences can serve as global intermediaries to increase a city’s capacity and governance structures to operate in their particular urban situation. The Tribunal presented testimonies from affected peoples around the globe, indicting cities and governance for inaction regarding climate change, inequity, and jobless growth. A distinguished cross-cultural panel of judges heard the cases presented by a diverse collection of experts and witnesses. 


Nonprofit Management Student Sara Gallagher Wins Fulbright Award

saraNonprofit Management student Sara Gallagher has won a prestigious Fulbright award to teach English in the country of Georgia! The Fulbright Program is a highly competitive, merit-based grant program for international educational exchange for students, scholars, teachers, professionals, scientists and artists, founded by United States Senator J. William Fulbright in 1946. Recipients of the reward receive scholarships to study, conduct research, or exercise their talents abroad. We asked Sara a couple questions about her plans:

Milano School: Can you explain your Fulbright fellowship?

Sara Gallagher: My fellowship is an ETA (English Teaching Assistantship) award which means I will be teaching English at a regional university. Georgia has a goal to make English its official second language by the year 2020. Achieving this will lead Georgia to engage in better relations with the European Union, strengthen tourism infrastructure, and preserve its cultural heritage. Because of this, I see English language education as a springboard to better economic prospects for people living in the country. In addition to teaching I’ll be running a creative writing program at the university because I see writing as a way to teach students to express themselves with precision and passion. Students will be encouraged to share their work online to make themselves visible in public space as new civil voices.
