Ellen stood firmly in Informing Change’s founding values of intelligence, integrity, and compassion. When she added the pursuit of social justice to that list, Ellen made explicit what’s at stake in carrying these values out, and sparked conversations at Informing Change that continue to this day about our visions for equity, inclusion, and belonging.
Ellen’s compassion, paired with her clear-eyed judgment and an uncompromising commitment to being of service, supported colleagues and clients alike in thinking critically about the challenges we face and the solutions within our reach. And she did so with a persistent faith in the good intentions of others and always in service of a better, more just world.
We celebrate Ellen’s legacy every day in the work we do and the clients we partner with. We also dedicate a day of pro-bono consulting to her. Learn more about Ellen Day.
