Alexis Schroeder, Co-Founder
From 2008 to early 2012, Lex served as NPi’s Managing Editor. She’s a Boston-based writer and host of conversations on leadership, mindful work, and creativity. As a media-maker and community organizer, her work has always focused on how change happens–both at the individual level and in community. Lex is interested in the many ways work is changing, systems thinking, women’s leadership, career design during what Charles Eisenstein calls the “age of transition,” and how Gen Y-ers go about building careers they can believe in and enjoy.
