The term Social Justice has been tossed around quite a bit lately due to some of the headlines on T.V and in the press, but if you look at the origins of Social Justice, it stems from the idea of equality in all facets of society, business or economic opportunities. For that reason, many proponents of social justice support the idea of change agents in the community and in the public sector specifically. On today’s show we have a real life change agent, Ms. Amelia Gibbon who will be joining us to share her perspective on creating change in society as it relates to leading a non-profit organization.
Amelia Gibbon is the Executive Director of The Friendly Center in Toledo Ohio. Amelia has dedicated her life to serving the Non-Profit community in Northwest Ohio and is the recipient of the 2014 Hero/Shero Award from the Ohio Commission on Minority Health. Her past positions include Member Services Director for the Girl Scouts Council of Maumee Valley, and Income Specialist for the United Way of Greater Toledo. Amelia holds a Bachelors degree in Public Administration from the University of Toledo. Amelia resides in Toledo, Ohio, and has two adult children, Sharmeta, and Charles.
