Special Projects Director; Digital Director, WE
Reflecting on the role WE played in shaping his career, Alex said,
A huge role! I got to work with social media on a scale I couldn’t have anywhere else. Working with youth means you’re working with native digital users, which made me realize how much the way you communicate and interact with youth is changing and made me focus more on tech and digital media.
The other big influence is that we were building an organization and a movement. I’m at a startup now because I really like the phase of figuring it out, working with people across departments, finding interesting problems to solve.
On what Alex learned at WE,
Along with the digital aspect, it was interacting with stakeholders. I talk to a lot of people in my role now, and at WE I had a lot of really good learning on how to work with people—negotiating and relationship management.
