Episode 12: Ariel Zwang #ChildVictimsAct

This week’s guest has been someone that I’ve looked up to since 2013 when I first started as a volunteer for Safe Horizon. If you are at all interested in non-profit management or want to learn more about the issues surrounding domestic violence and the services available, this is the interview for you. Ariel Zwang has been the CEO of Safe Horizon since 2008. Safe Horizon is the nation’s leading provider of services to victims of crime and abuse. Each year it provides support to hundreds of thousands of people who have endured domestic violence, child abuse, human trafficking, and many other forms of violence. Ariel began her career at Morgan Stanley and the Boston Consulting Group and was previously the Executive Director of New York Cares, which, under her leadership, became the city’s largest volunteer organization, deploying 40,000 volunteers annually. Ariel received an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BA in Applied Mathematics from Harvard College. Today we’re having a real conversation about some of the worst things people do to one another, mental health, breaking the cycle and much more. Sometimes, we ask ourselves, “what can I do about that issue to help”? For many of us, there isn’t always a clear path. But you should be knowledgeable of what is going on around you and listen. You never know when you can make a difference in someone’s life.
