At a moment when the great challenges of our time cannot be solved by one leader, technology or perspective, Jeanine is passionate about collaborative and participatory approaches to impact. In this context, she has spent almost two decades serving as a coach, facilitator, educator and organizational development consultant partnering with purpose-led leaders to sustainably scale their impact through generative relationships, thriving organizational cultures and participatory strategies. She has worked with leaders in foundations, corporations, nonprofits and networks, including Amgen Foundation, Aga Khan Foundation, the World Bank, Slack, Twitter, Central Park Conservancy, World Pulse,, Converge, Uncommon Cacao and MedZed.

In her prior work, Jeanine helped develop grantmaking strategies and review grant and early-stage impact investment opportunities at the Motorola Foundation and at the Full Circle Fund. She also taught Negotiation and Collaboration for over a decade at Stanford and has led teams to negotiate and close thousands of transactions on four continents for organizations ranging from rapidly scaling startups to Fortune 500 Companies.  

More recently, Jeanine has facilitated workshops and cohort peer programs for leaders with a focus on building connection, leadership development and deepening in REDI practice. As a partner at Evolution.Team, she has designed and led bespoke leadership development workshops and provided executive coaching for purpose-led leaders with a potent combination of clear frameworks, research-based practices and unwavering support to encourage her clients to lead authentically, compassionately and creatively when it matters most – even in the midst of conflict. She is excited to bring this experience to the equity centered work of The Giving Practice (TGP).

Jeanine holds a BA in Sociology and a Certificate in Peace and Justice Studies from Tufts University and a JD from Stanford Law School. She has edited a supplement in the Stanford Social Innovation Review focused on cross-sector leadership and authored multiple pieces including “The Need for Cross Sector Collaboration” and the “The Essential Skills of Cross Sector Leadership.”

She loves to learn — whether from a good book, great conversation or the next adventure, and when at home she is sinking into her new community in Portland and delighting in her curious and wise 4-year-old daughter.
