Miriam McBride supports the talent and growth strategies of nonprofits, NGOs and other social justice leaders. Miriam began her nonprofit career in substance abuse treatment research in Philadelphia, then found her way to workforce development — initially as a computer skills instructor — at The Doe Fund, first in Philadelphia and later in Brooklyn. Her nonprofit management experience has since spanned recruiting and talent management with an equity lens, program design and assessment, data systems implementation, communications strategy, and organization development. Miriam has managed talent searches for national social change organizations while at On-Ramps; led research, partner development and talent strategy for Per Scholas national expansion; refreshed communications, data management and tech platforms at includeNYC; and helmed talent and HR strategy and operations at the Center for Employment Opportunities. Miriam holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania and a master’s in nonprofit management from The New School, where she managed the Tenenbaum Leadership Initiative to support executive directors succeeding founders. Miriam is honored to work with teams advocating for criminal justice reform, economic and educational access for historically overlooked and discriminated against communities, and equity and inclusion for all. Miriam spends as much time as possible in the outdoors of Brooklyn and New Jersey’s Pinelands with her partner Brendan and toddler Charlie.
