We are excited to introduce our new program officer to the Equitable Education portfolio, Bekah Sabzalian.
A blended background in public education and nonprofit program leadership, a deep commitment and passion for equity and community, and a highly analytical mindset are just some of the qualities that Bekah brings to her role within the education portfolio.
Before coming to Meyer, Bekah worked as a elementary and middle school teacher in Portland Public Schools. Prior that, at community-based nonprofit organizations for six years. Bekah is committed to focusing on youth, education and equity work, and also believes that education works best when connected with community work.
She is excited to start partnering with organizations again and becoming more active in community engagement. We are excited that she will be joining the Equitable Education team here at Meyer!
