Inspired by our Work
Doing this work is a privilege. We’re inspired by our social enterprise partners and the people they serve who are striving for a better life.
We work to foster a culture of inclusion and openness, approaching our jobs with humility and respect for our colleagues and partners. We value and seek to learn from the lived experience of people served by social enterprises.
Tackling big, intractable challenges requires a willingness to innovate and take risks, informed by a healthy respect for data. REDF staff are creative, right and left brain thinkers that collaborate with our partners to move the field forward. We also have fun doing it.
REDF is working to build a better, more inclusive society where all people have the jobs and support they need—and the pride, purpose, and path to self-sufficiency they deserve.
I feel very fortunate to be in this role and to work at REDF. It is a unique opportunity to do this type of work and to apply my background in business to social issues. I have found a workplace that allows me to continue learning and keeps me engaged with challenging problems that are both interesting and impactful. And I have the opportunity to work with bright and engaged colleagues who are smart and passionate about their work – I learn from them every day.
Karen ChernDirector, Growth Portfolio
Watching our partners implement suggestions for improvement is an incredibly rewarding part of my job that reaffirms my respect for social enterprise leaders. They wear so many hats and have to make things happen in circumstances that are very demanding. I am always so inspired by their dedication, and unwavering belief that everyone has something to contribute.
Kristen GreenManager, Capacity Building
The passion and dedication of REDF’s social enterprise partners is incredible to witness. And the commitment of their employees to change their lives – not just for themselves, but also for their families and communities – motivates me each day in my work.
