Presentation: Looking Inward to Create Sustainable Development

Date: Friday, March 31
Time: 2:00–5:00 pm
Location: Room C05, Social Work Building, 1255 Amsterdam Ave., NYC

As Ubuntu Education Fund’s Chief Program Officer, Jana Zindell oversees the strategic development and implementation of the organization’s programs. She spearheaded the creation of the Ubuntu Model, a strategy rooted in four tenets: individualized cradle to career care, focus on the depth rather than the breadth of impact, sustained institutional investments, and commitment to community partnerships. Jana has since established her unique voice within the nonprofit sector’s global poverty debate as one of increasing significance.

In addition to her programmatic work, Jana created BUILD, an innovative staff empowerment initiative, in 2010; the initiative promotes sustainable leadership, organizational accountability, and increased efficiency. She also served as the Ubuntu Centre Project Manager, coordinating the design of the nonprofit’s 25,000 square foot headquarters in Port Elizabeth’s townships.
