Connection, Courage, Creativity
Allison has done this work from different angles: as a government employee, university researcher, nonprofit leader, and now, consultant. Allison has been interviewing local gov leaders to understand how they bring connection, courage and creativity to local government and community work. Herocrats are government employees who risk their livelihoods to fight systemic injustice. In 2022, Allison will release her first book, Herocrats, which shares stories and strategies of government employees who are fighting systemic injustice.
I went to grad school with her at Carnegie Mellon University and have enjoyed watching her career!
