Interview Requests

Email Jennifer Jones at to request an interview with one of our experts, like Teresa Crawford, Executive Director of the Social Sector Accelerator.


Teresa leads the Social Sector Accelerator, a subsidiary of the Counterpart Network. The Accelerator takes Counterpart International’s proven capacity building approach even farther by acting as an incubator for social sector organizations worldwide.
