During her time as an ICF Executive Fellow, Andrea spent the year at Yale SOM sharing her knowledge of nonprofit organizations and worked with several students on a special project centered around identifying ways to combat wealth inequality.

Read more about Andrea’s special project, a one-day convening about “charting the next wave of equitable finance,” hosted and sponsored jointly by the Yale International Center for Finance and Yale Program on Social Enterprise. The convening resulted in a very special proceedings document which shares the insights from the participants at the convening with the goal of promoting understanding and action around expanding access to equitable finance.
