Dear GATHERING FOR WOMEN Community, I am very pleased to announce our new Executive Director, Staci M. Alziebler-Perkins, began her tenure Monday, August 12th. Staci is returning to California after 20+ years in New York City where she has been a passionate advocate for gender equity, social justice, and environmental stewardship. She is experienced in financial management, grant management, fundraising, human resource management and has an in-depth knowledge of the intersectionality of poverty, racism, and gender inequity. Staci also brings knowledge of the philanthropic arena. Her strengths include building strong partnerships and coalitions, leadership and mentorship, and managing organizations experiencing change and growth. She holds an MBA from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies and a BA in Political Science from the University of California, Santa Barbara. As an ardent women and girls’ rights supporter, Staci has advocated for women's rights at the local, national and international level both personally and professionally as the President of the Zonta Club of New York City and as a United Nations Committee member for Zonta International.
Staci is looking forward to working with all of us to help the homeless women in our community. To quote her: "Providing a pathway out of homelessness and a more sustainable and secure future for women is a mission I believe in, and Gathering for Women is an organization I will give my whole heart to. I am thrilled to take the helm of a team already doing fabulous work in Monterey County, and to build on its current success."
Please stop by the Gathering to welcome Staci to the GFW community and to introduce yourself to her. Best, Amy Sands, President Board of Directors
