Cynthia Billops
VP - Operations, Membership & Belonging, One Step Closer

Cynthia is an inspired, “human-first” champion of people, projects and organizations with a goal of implementing systems and practices that use diversity, belonging and inclusion as catalysts to ensure sustainable, socially responsible, profitable growth. She holds a doctorate in Educational Leadership and Policy from Mills College; is an enthusiastic believer in proactive risk-identification and mitigation using Powerful Non-Defensive Communication and has spent the last few decades guiding groups as they define, ramp-up on and launch complex IT, Web/SaaS and "Culture Shift" initiatives - resulting in:

  • structurally efficient
  • opportunity enhancing
  • revenue generating

Projects and Programming that support, engage and "level up" systemically marginalized individuals and communities while also, positively, contributing to organizational capacity, resilience and financial stability.

“The connections built in doing this work collectively with other companies was encouraging and inspiring. Pathways empowered All Good with resources, tools and a tangible framework to dive more deeply into J.E.D.I. It provided a space of safe and open communication to work through tough and sensitive topics.”
