Megan on working for CEIE: "I love being part of such a creative, kind, and collaborative team that strives to make content that is relevant and meaningful to people in the current context we’re living in. You know you’ve found a good place when it’s clear your colleagues care about you as a full human being.”
Appreciation from Director:
Megan Anderson brings a much-in-demand skillset of theology, environmental justice, organizing curriculum, and educational design, to her work supporting the Center’s engagement locally and globally. Megan’s efforts on the Faith for Earth Guide raised up the ways we collaborate with our partner organizations, our Advisory Council, and other local leaders and clergy. In addition, Megan brought our core team together to co-create the contents of the Guide in a way where all team members feel invested and seen. I am so grateful to Megan and look forward to her joyful leadership on our next resource!
