This week, CityBizList ran a three-part interview with OSI-Baltimore’s director, Diana Morris. In the series, Morris spoke to Veronica Cool, CEO of Cool and Associates, LLC and OSI-Baltimore advisory board member about her career beginnings as a legal advisor in the Refugee Bureau of the State Department as well as leading Open Society Foundations’ first U.S. field office in Baltimore.
Morris also spoke not only of the challenges of working on such complex issues like criminal and juvenile justice, drug addiction treatment and education and youth development, but of the importance of focusing on those areas in order to help “establish a playing field that is level.”
She discussed the success of the Community Fellowships Network, now in its 20th cohort and how deeply OSI Community Fellows are ingrained in the fabric of Baltimore.
