Posted Nov 10 2022

Roger Nathanial Ashby MPA-DP ’17 is the cofounder and executive director of OpenWise Learning, a youth development organization serving marginalized kids by providing them with STEM education with an emphasis on Technology, Social Justice and Ecological Justice.

“The development practice program was exactly what I needed. It provided me with practical skills that I could actually apply to the consulting part of my organization, but also broadened my understanding of some of the social issues that we’re teaching the kids.”
