The Team

 

Core Team

Belynda Bady

Belynda Bady

Associate Director for International Consulting and Operations, Harvard Global Support Services

Belynda is the leader of the #consciousharvard team, overseeing all aspects of the project and helping design and implement the Sounding Board, reaching out to leaders of the Harvard community, and overseeing the branding and presence of the initiative.

To have a fully conscious Harvard to Belynda means ongoing and frequent discussions, backed by actions, with full engagement from the entire Harvard community. Hence #consciousharvard. It is not only about her, it is about all of us. “We all do better when we work together. Our differences do matter, but our common humanity matters more.” ― Bill Clinton

Julie Crites

Julie Crites

Director of Common Spaces, Office of Vice President for Administration

Julie is involved with the design of the sounding board and placement of the participatory sounding board within Common Spaces on Harvard’s campus. She is thrilled to be a member of this dynamic team for bringing this important conversation into Harvard’s new community space, the Smith Campus Center.

Julie is inspired by the potential for #consciousharvard to create space for self-reflection, awareness raising, and bringing people together to talk about things that are painful, healing, restorative, and humanizing.

Barbara's ideal #consciousharvard is to create a culture in which all students, staff, and faculty can bring their ‘whole selves’ to their respective work, and thrive in a learning and service environment.
