A Note on PIE Leadership

A week ago, we announced that PIE is seeking a Director.

We’re excited about new developments in leadership here at PIE and after thinking over the past few days, we want to share the context for this important transition. Here’s a note from our current director, Nate Mullen:

Hello Loves!

As you may have gathered, I am planning to transition out of my role as director. I’m hoping that by August 2019 I can fully leave this role to a new leader who is just as passionate about advancing our work.

I've been working towards this goal for the past two years. In that process we've made some big changes at PIE to make it stronger and become a great place to start a new chapter. I believe PIE is now at that place.

We have an amazing group of people supporting this work -- our team, our advisory board and all of you! PIE has worked hard to ensure we can sustain our projects, and we have a new suite of programing that will allow the work to of humanizing schooling to continue.

As for me, I am hoping to return to what I love: making art and facilitating space. I am stepping down, not stepping away; my intention is to keep supporting PIE, just not as the director. I hope to continue leading trainings, making art, maybe transition to the Advisory Board and/or help in other capacities.

I can’t begin to tell you how much this work means to me. I have never given more than I have given to our vision, mission and goals at PIE. In many ways, it has been a dream come true. And now it’s time we dream anew.
