Nehanda A.M. Lindsey

Senior Vice President

Nehanda is in many ways the heart of CommonHealth ACTION. As one of the organization’s longest-serving employees, she knows the organization and its work inside and out. She has been a driving force in developing the organization’s operations and scaling its impact through the expansion of services. 

I take action for equity because inaction is not an option. Our current reality clearly demonstrates that we must apply an equity lens continuously across all areas of our lives in order for everyone to thrive.

In addition to directing all major operational activities for CommonHealth ACTION, including oversight of program activities and organizational strategy, Nehanda supports programmatic and learning activities through video, virtual tools, social media, training development, and continuing education. Her role also includes providing oversight for CommonHealth ACTION’s teams who provide assessment and evaluation, learning and coaching, organizational change strategy, and leadership development services.

An expert writer and editor, Nehanda brings to CommonHealth ACTION and its partners an extensive background and expertise in program development, project management, facilitation, information design and communications, as well as learning and development. A certified meeting professional with over 22 years’ experience in the conference and events industry, she also provides direction for CommonHealth ACTION’s major events. Nehanda is also very passionate about helping organizations develop their own equitable policies, practices, and programs and leverages her skills to provide them with technical support.

Nehanda holds Masters degrees in Information Design and Communications as well as International Business.
