All about Rebecca Krisel.
Rebecca blends policy and business expertise in sustainability and corporate social responsibility to drive compelling communication campaigns.
As a founding member at Speakable, a civic tech start up focused on matching advocacy campaigns to news content, Rebecca oversaw the external communications strategy, including developing the voice for the tool and launching the social media channels. She also managed relationships with editorial teams at major news outlets like the Huffington Post and the Guardian, and designed campaigns with nonprofit clients including the IRC and Save the Children.
A wordsmith at heart, Rebecca knows how to message effectively and succinctly in ways that grab attention and inspire people to act. She believes in the power of storytelling, and knows where to find the humanity in any project. She has experience working with business leaders, policy researchers, and scientists to make their ideas compelling and accessible to an average reader.
Rebecca holds a MA of international affairs from Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs, and a BA in the College of Social Studies at Wesleyan University.
When she is not strategizing about CSR communications, Rebecca is writing stories and personal essays. Originally from Paris, she lives in Brooklyn, and enjoys jazz.
