Becky leads the Systems & Complexity Consulting Practice at The Omidyar Group. She works across Omidyar Group organisations to support teams who are adopting a systems approach, including leading the development of materials and programs designed
to increase systems capacities. Prior to joining the The Omidyar Group, Becky earned a Master of Sustainable Peacebuilding from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where she was a John M. Kohler scholar. During graduate school she completed
fieldwork at a community social-enterprise in Costa Rica and worked as a Water Conflict and Cooperation research assistant. Prior to attending graduate school, Becky’s work focused on the community level. She developed a three-agency collaborative

as well as a sustainable revenue stream for the shelter. Becky earned a B.A. in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, where she graduated magna cum laude. Becky is a Fellow with the Academy for Systems Change and has spoken at
the World Economic Forum, School of System Change, Emerge Oxford, and Environmental Grantmakers Association.
