Lindsey Bourne

Human Resources and Operations Director

Lindsey (she/her) believes that the HR, operations, and finances of a nonprofit serve as the critical foundation from which an organization's leadership and programs can thrive and sustain growth. She's spent the last eight years of her career supporting youth development and arts nonprofits in the Bay, using her love of organization and efficiency to re-think organizational systems and streamline operations.

Prior to joining Cultural Power, she served as the Director of Finance and Operations at Youth Speaks, while simultaneously acting as the Head of Safety/Accessibility for the Brave New Voices Festival - the largest international youth poetry slam festival in the world.
In addition to her work here at Cultural Power, Lindsey sits on the board of Twelve Literary Arts in her hometown of Cleveland, OH, coaches youth lacrosse at Oakland High, and co-facilitates narrative therapy sessions at San Quentin each week. In her free time, she dedicates her musical pursuits and playing to exploring the cultural erasure of traditional roots music.
