Full bio
After a twelve year departure from the Bay Area, Sami Nerenberg recently returned to take on the Executive Director role at the Alliance for Community Development to support female and minority entrepreneurs. Previously, she was the Associate Director of Design for America where under her leadership the program grew from 40 college students at one university to 1,000 students at 29 universities throughout the US where interdisciplinary teams used creative problem solving for local and social good. Her past work and students have been discussed in publications and blogs such as Fast Company, Chicago Tribune, Inc Magazine, Huffington Post, Core77 and more. She has given talks at conferences such as TEDx, IDSA, IxDA, Better Word by Design, and given workshops at college campuses across the country. She earned her masters in Organizational Change from Northwestern University and a BFA in industrial design at the Rhode Island School of Design and has taught design and engineering at both universities. Specialties: I am best at strategizing big picture ideas for social change and mobilizing action towards a specific goal. I work at the intersection of design, business, and social innovation with a constant educational twist.
