We believe her strong leadership experience will help shape the way we advance Strategic CaseMaking™ in the field and ultimately help us strengthen the capacity of leaders to broaden their support.”
“We’re at a pivotal moment in our nation’s history where we can choose to redesign our systems for greater fairness and sustainability or stay on the same path of exclusion,” said Jennifer Rich. “Dr. Manuel’s Strategic CaseMaking™ approach gives changemakers the evidence-based tools they need to make the case for choosing an equitable future. It’s a privilege to be joining her team at TheCaseMade.”
