Kerry Sinclair is a recent graduate of the Bard MBA in Sustainability program and a social development specialist. She is strongly devoted to raising awareness and building partnerships across social enterprise and NGO sectors internationally. Kerry brings a diverse skill set that has enabled her to spearhead cause-related marketing campaigns and increase the engagement of women in gender equity and labor issues. Her credits include directing strategy development and impact studies for social enterprises in the U.S. and Africa (Ghana, Ethiopia). She got her first taste of international and community development from a year spent in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, where she designed a dance program for youth. Kerry’s overall objective is to combine business-investment strategies from the private sector with the social leadership expertise found in many NGOs, and to develop a strong stakeholder network that will have a replicable and scalable impact across growth markets worldwide.
