NCG is pleased to announce the operations team is growing! Deirdre Judge (they/them) joins as the new Operations Coordinator supporting the implementation of NCG's internal and external infrastructure. Deirdre has spent their entire career working against oppressive systems and believes that policies, and their operationalization, are what give teeth to liberatory theorization.
Deirdre joins the Finance & Operations team working closely with Alice Cabrera Bryant where they'll support anti-racist practices in everything from hiring processes to vendor contracts at NCG.
"Deirdre's contribution to NCG has already had such an impact on how we operate internally," said NCG's Finance and Operations Director, Alice Cabrera Bryant. "I'm excited for the impact to trickle into the external experiences that members have when engaging in the NCG community!"
Deirdre’s time with NCG began as a contractor in early 2022 leading new COVID office procedures, and implementing new recruitment and hiring processes for the growing team. Prior to NCG, their experience included direct services roles managing a college-in-prison program, training future educators, mentoring LGBTQIA+ youth, and working in HIV & STI counseling and testing. When they are not working away, you can find Deirdre reading Speculative Fiction, watching everything Marvel, and hanging out with their dog, Mr. Pancake.
