• Jo Kaiser

    Executive Director, The Media Consortium

    Jo Ellen is a personal reinventor. Like most of her colleagues in independent media, Jo Ellen has held multiple roles, including managing editor (Tikkun), developmental book editor, project manager, publisher (LIP and Zeek) and now executive director. She has taken forays into the nonprofit world through her work on Jewish social justice (and is the co-editor of Righteous Indignation: A Jewish Response to Justice). She started her career as an academic, teaching literary theory and contemporary poetry, and holds a PhD from U.C. Berkeley and a BA from Yale. The common thread to her work is a belief that democracy requires informed citizens who can think critically about contemporary issues.
