Debayani Kar, she/her
Amplifying the voices of individuals and communities who otherwise may be silenced is what got Debayani into communications and advocacy. For more than 15 years, Debayani has designed strategies to move the needle on domestic and international economic issues, racial justice, LGBTQ equity and immigrant rights. She is particularly proud of her efforts to spotlight the need to invest in boys and young men of color, taken up by the Obama administration in the My Brother’s Keeper initiative.
As a communications strategist, Debayani believes story-driven strategies tailored to the audiences we need to move will create real change. She previously served as account director at Fenton, partnering with foundation and nonprofit clients to change the national conversation about race and public health.
