Executive Director, CASE


I'm the executive director of the award-winning Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship (CASE) at Fuqua. CASE is a leader in the field of social innovation, training the next generation of impact leaders and serving as a hub for research and practitioner engagement related to scaling social impact, impact investing, and more.  I'm the lead author of CASE’s Scaling Pathways series, in partnership with the Skoll Foundation, USAID’s Global Development Lab and MercyCorps, and am proud of the CASE team’s work creating CASE Smart Impact Capital, an online learning series for impact entrepreneurs.

Prior to Fuqua, I worked in the nonprofit, public and private sectors including consulting with government and nonprofit clients at Booz Allen Hamilton, helping to develop public-private partnerships at USAID, working on private sector development issues at the World Bank, and working for a nonprofit think tank in Washington D.C. I earned my BA from Duke and my MBA from Stanford. My work has been published in the Academy of Management, Learning & Education; Huffington Post; NextBillion, DevEx, Social Impact Exchange, and more. You can follow me on Twitter @ErinWorsham.
