Soumary Vongrassamy

Program Director

Partners in Diversity
Director of Programs

Soumary oversees programs supporting our member organizations to go bolder with their equity/diversity/inclusion work and supporting people of color with community building and leadership development opportunities.
 
She's worked in the intersections of public K-12 education and racial justice as a public administrator, policy advocate and grantmaker in Wisconsin, Washington DC and New York City. Immediately prior to Partners in Diversity, she was the director of people operations at DonorsChoose.org - an amazing tech nonprofit crowdfunding for teachers and their classroom needs.
 
Soumary earned a BBA and MPA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She deeply enjoys empowering people to show up as their full selves, indulging in art events and listening to your stories.
