Austin Boral is a joint MPP candidate at the Harvard Kennedy School, an MBA candidate at the Harvard Business School, and a co-founder of Civic Roundtable. Civic Roundtable is building community and capacity among the public servants that power public institutions through a peer-to-peer community platform–starting with election officials. Civic Roundtable partners with agencies, associations, and nonprofits to connect public servants to the people they trust most (their peers) and the resources and expertise they depend on to get the job done. As a Foundation Fellow, Austin is launching Civic Roundtable with U.S. election administrations, with the goal of mitigating the election industry’s “Great Resignation” while strengthening election authorities and restoring trust in elections at the state and local level in New York and beyond.
Furman Haynes worked at Year Up, a leading workforce development nonprofit that is helping close the Opportunity Divide, i.e., the gap between talented young people and companies in need of skills. Year Up’s core program offers skills training and a six-month internship in high-growth fields like IT, Business Operations, and Finance. To date, the organization has helped connect over 36,000 low-income young adults to livable wage careers. Results from a federally-sponsored RCT study show that Year Up’s impact on the earnings of graduates are among the largest of any workforce organization in the country.
