A message from the incoming Co-Executive Directors

It is a privilege and gift to work for a more just and sustainable Alaska beside the incredible staff, board, and supporters of The Alaska Center and The Alaska Center Education Fund. We are excited to take this next step and are grateful beyond measure for Polly’s decade of work and mentorship. Our hope is to continue her trajectory of visionary leadership.

We look forward to the collaborative nature of the co-Executive Director model, which will provide unique support for the breadth of our organizations’ collective work. Co-leadership allows our responsibilities to align with our strengths and complementary areas of interest.

On October 15, 2022, we will assume the co-directorship, and our outgoing Executive Director, Polly Carr, will stay in an advisory role until November 4 to ensure a smooth transition. 

Our stewardship and allyship will keep evolving, and we look forward to learning and growing with you all. We face unprecedented crises for our planet and democracy. But our collective power is beyond measure. 

Together with you, we are ready to build a thriving, just and sustainable future for our state and generations to come!
