Leadership Team

EMSP Director, Landen Zernickow

Landen ZernickowMy imperative is to build. With an equity and social impact lens, I build programs, connections, capacity, and strategic engagement.

I have more than nine years of experience with mission-driven organizations. Currently, I develop and align resources through collaborative partnerships to support STEAM initiatives in the East Metro area of Multnomah County, Oregon. Previously, I directed Genesys Works – Bay Area’s multi-site program to transform the lives of underprivileged high school students through professional skills training, meaningful technology internships, and impactful relationships. Prior to that, I helped launch Genesys Works’ college access programming and was one of the founding staff members in the Bay Area. I have also trained au pair agencies abroad, built a Latino entrepreneurship consultancy, and managed international financial counseling programs.
