Women leaders helping  leaders thrive.

Anchor 1

Kamilah Martin, Founder & CEO

" I left a Vice President role of a prestigious international NGO once it became clear that having a title did not equal having a valued, independent voice. I knew I could have a much greater impact using my experience and expertise to support leaders whose lived values more closely mirrored mine. I built a team of women and mothers who wanted to use their lives to do good—and to help others in leadership roles at their organizations succeed in their efforts to do good."

Kamilah possess that rare ability to pivot between strategy and tactics, serving as both an insightful thought partner as well as a dynamic “roll-up your sleeves and get to work” partner. This combination, coupled with her high emotional intelligence, make her a warm steadying force and a valuable advisor in any endeavor.

Kamilah’s supportive and welcoming demeanor, her excellent questions, and willingness to march head on into a problem that needs solving helped our work progress during a period of tremendous change.  Of course, an outsider would never suspect that there was change afoot or challenges to manage because of Kamilah’s steady hand and calm composure.

Her commitment to a more equitable and kinder world will benefit many.  At New York Cares, we know how lucky anyone who gets to work with Kamilah is.
