Lori Pampilo Harris
Lori has had had the privilege to work with the public sector at every level of government, elected officials, federal entities, Tribal Nations, indigenous entities, and NGOs who seek to increase high-level engagement on complex issues and invest in communities they serve. She supported each in the pursuit of balancing budget and purpose; that will lead to serving more people and achieving their goals. Through the lens of being indigenous Pacific Islander and a Filipina, these successful initiatives were made possible by encouraging collaborative governance, which brings together government change agents and BIPOC citizens and groups with strong community-based support networks to develop new procedures and norms that prioritize racial justice. This strategy acknowledges the need for creating relationships and trust to address and correct historical and contemporary harm while working together to create a new and revolutionary system.
