With Eli Ingraham
Today you’ll meet Eli Ingraham, Impact Shaman, and Daughter of Change. Eli has been involved in some form of social justice and social enterprise for most of her adult life.
Eli is passionate about working for the common good, promoting regenerative leadership, and expecting bold action from business, government, and civil society to create a world based on shared respect, responsibility, and prosperity.
Eli started her career in finance and technology and ran her own advisory company focused on digital acceleration. She worked at PBS and NPR developing digital media startups, then moved to digital innovation for Fortune 50 Companies. Her work at the Young Presidents Organization [YPO] and Facing History deeply immersed her in social impact work, particularly around leadership, sustainability, and human rights. Until recently, she led TIE Global Artisans, aimed at alleviating poverty and preserving the cultural heritage of African textile weavers.
Currently, Eli is the CEO of Team Sager, a family foundation committed to humanitarian efforts in conflict zones around the world, and to elevating authentic voices. She oversees programs in India/Nepal/Bhutan with the Dalai Lama combining Western science with Eastern Buddhism in monastic curriculum. She also oversees a micro-loan program in Rwanda supporting thousands of women on both sides of the genocide who agreed to go into business together as a means of healing that nation.
To quote Eli “Leadership means living in the now, between those who came before and those who come after, in the enduring work of human progress. It means doing something, without guilt and without excuses, in service to people and planet.”
