Executive Director, 3rd Creek Foundation
Gwen Straley envisions a world where all people own their financial futures, lead dignified lives free from poverty, and are increasingly motivated to contribute to society and the natural environment. This guides her leadership at 3rd Creek Foundation and her work as wealth advisor with 3rd Creek Investments, Inc. Prior to joining 3rd Creek, Gwen led projects and consulted for private and public sector organizations in Somalia, Liberia, Nepal, Palestine, Vietnam, and Honduras. Gwen is grateful that the majority of these opportunities involved working with locally led organizations. She holds an MBA from the Thunderbird School of Global Management and a Bachelor of Arts from Hampshire College with a concentration in Sustainable Development.
