Devi Jane Leiper O’Malley

As a young feminist activist, I use my voice, positionality, knowledge, and skills to be the ‘activist’s activist,’ ensuring that feminist advocates everywhere have what they need to fight for our rights and be leaders in our communities. Working with women’s funds and philanthropic organizations, I try to ensure our movement is resource-full, with money, ideas, and relationships. The professional world is always political, and our political work is highly personal. I enjoy working with passionate people to build and sustain communities through strategic planning, organizational development, and management. I am a creative and participatory leader with success in founding identity-based groups representing sex workers, ethnic minorities, young professionals, and students. Devi is currently co-lead strategic direction of Fund, including strategic planning, liaison with Advisory Committee and governance processes, representation in key international meetings and forums, human resources, systems and financial management.
