Nadia Gathers is the Communications Coordinator at CODE2040. She graduated cum laude from Converse College, where she designed the institution's Social Entrepreneurship curriculum.
During her collegiate career, she created a nationally recognized action plan to increase gender diversity in the C-suite alongside the benefit corporation, Womenetics. She also worked with Buffalo, New York tech start-ups to do the not-so-glamorous dirty work of starting a business. She helped create the nation's first environmentally responsive, permanent outdoor video installation, The Front Yard. She's been a facilitator at workshops for at-risk high school students, and coached an all-girls basketball team to a co-ed league championship. Most notably, she once taught a second grader how to read.
Nadia is passionate about catalyzing social movements on a local level. When not actively overthrowing the patriarchy, she enjoys running, and making tea.
