Becky Richeson is a systems thinker and do-er. She helps people across Omidyar Group organizations make sense of complex adaptive systems and find ways to leverage energy in the systems to drive impact. She also develops materials and programmes designed to increase the systems thinking capacity of teams. She dove into systems thinking after doing community-based work and realizing that just getting more funding and working even longer hours wasn’t going to result in the sustainable impact she desired. Becky earned a Master’s degree in Sustainable Peacebuilding from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and a BA in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
