Michele Joseph, CEO of SGAP Leaders

7/4/2023
This week on Capital Workspaces presents The HUB we speak with Michele Joseph, CEO of SGAP Leaders. SGAP Leaders’ programming provides opportunities for motivated underserved students to develop leadership and critical 21st century skills needed for college and career readiness. Michele tells how a cancer diagnosis and trip with her son and some of his friends to the United Nations made her think deeply about her value to her community and what she wanted to achieve. During this time, Michele also began to notice how her son's school curriculum undervalued the students’ ability to think critically, problem solve creatively, and lead empathetically. She believes that these skills are synonymous with success. Furthermore, she believes that every student has the capacity to positively impact their communities and ultimately the world, yet underserved students may not be given the opportunity to do so. Hence, she founded SGAP Leaders. "Joseph attained her MBA in strategy and marketing from the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University, and her BSc in Biology/Environmental Sciences from Catholic University of America. She taught marketing, public relations, and entrepreneurship to high school, undergraduate and graduate students. She was a runway model for Wilhelmina Modeling Agency and the house model for Liz Claiborne – Sports." - Leadership Team-SGAP Leaders To learn more visit SGAPLeaders.org Thanks for listening!
