We are thrilled to welcome Jackie Rodriguez to the Givelify family as our new Vice President of People & Culture! Jackie works to foster an inclusive work culture fueled by fun, purpose, and achievement. She also serves Zoya medical missions and Women With Promise. According to Jackie:
“Zig Ziglar once said, ‘You don’t build a business. You build the People, then People build the business.‘ I am excited to serve in this role to help build the framework where we can all belong, grow, and succeed as we pursue our mission to enable a new generation of philanthropists.”
