Lisa Silverberg partners with leaders to design and support organizational change. With experience in capacity building, leadership and team development, strategic and project planning, and meeting facilitation, Lisa helps social and economic justice organizations and multi-stakeholder groups clarify their goals and create conversations that help achieve those goals. She designs creative and inclusive dialogues that make space for divergent views in an effort to create a shared vision and strategic direction. She brings a systems approach to looking at culture, structure, and process changes that lead to impactful outcomes. Clients share that Lisa brings experience, optimism, commitment, honesty and humor to the work — not necessarily in that order. 😉
Lisa is a graduate of the Georgetown University certificate program in Organizational Development, and the Coaches Training Institute, and has worked with hundreds of local and national groups including The Partnership for Working Families, Action for Health Kids, Service Employees International Union, Change to Win, Planned Parenthood, Rainbow Families DC, Men Can Stop Rape, the Ms. Foundation and many more.
She has master’s degrees in both Literature and in Sociology. She taught Sociology and Women’s Studies at American University, and Literature and Composition at Georgetown University. Lisa also sat on the selection committee for the Washington Post/Center for Nonprofit Advancement Award for Excellence in Nonprofit Management for 5 years, but took a leave to spend more time with her son and her kayak.
