EVC welcomes new Executive Director

 

Dear EVC friends and family,

The EVC Board of Directors is proud to announce that Ambreen Qureshi has joined the organization as Executive Director after our founder of 35 years, Steve Goodman, retired earlier this year.

Ambreen has extensive leadership experience in the non-profit and media industries including Magnum Photos, Associated Press and PixelPress. She received her Masters from the New School with a concentration in media and culture.

Previously as the Deputy Executive Director of the Arab-American Family Support Center, a trauma informed Settlement House, Ambreen spearheaded the development of innovative youth media programs focusing on social justice including a participatory youth filmmaking program, a photography campaign combatting bigotry, and a large scale film installation and dance action to protest the travel ban.

We are excited to build on Steve Goodman’s vision and to take EVC to new heights under Ambreen’s leadership. She brings extensive fundraising, programmatic and staff development experiences to the organization at this pivotal moment.

A devotee of all things tea, Ambreen is usually never far from a steaming cup of leaves and is currently studying Kintsugi, the traditional Japanese art of repairing broken ceramics with gold.

You will get a chance to meet her in the next month, as we will have many events premiering the powerful documentaries EVC students have created over the semester. Details will arrive in your inbox shortly! Please take a moment to stop by, introduce yourself, and welcome Ambreen to EVC.

Sincerely,

Colleen Devery
EVC Board Chair
