Sharon Dowdell is a social impact investor and philanthropist with a deep passion for the restoration of disempowered identities and the integration of all of our diverse parts to enable greater self-actualization, both individually and collectively. She is especially focused on bringing the secret wisdoms of the feminine forward and supporting women as they cross the chasm of motherhood to bring their gifts to the world. Prior to her personal transformation journey, Sharon had a successful corporate career in marketing and product management, as a consultant with Accenture, and in-house with pharmaceutical and financial services companies. With her experience in driving transformational change in complex ecosystems, developing innovative strategies, digital capability building, redesigning operating models, and aligning cross-functional departments toward collective vision, she now turns her attention towards working with trailblazers who promote racial & gender equity and sustainability. Leading the social impact investments and philanthropy for her family office, she is paving the way for more conscious and mission aligned investing/granting that creatively navigates sectors to organize for collective impact that can scale and last. Sharon is a member of Toniic, NEXUS Global, and the Golden Seeds angel group. She holds an MBA from ESADE Business School (Barcelona) and a B.A. in Sociology and Mathematics from the University of Notre Dame. To connect with her mother’s roots, she taught English in Korean high schools for 2 years on a Fulbright Grant.
