AYRIS T. SCALES
Capital Raiser & Philanthropist | Transition Guru | Tribe Builder Advocate | Enterpriser | Advisor
Ayris is the foremost thought leader and in-demand consultant leading the charge in the area of vision and execution congruence within the non-profit, government, and corporate sectors. Through these efforts she endeavors to alter the trajectory of Black women and girl’s lives by openly sharing her story, fighting to close the wage, gender and racial gap that keeps true progress just out of reach for Black women and girls and by partnering with organizations to hold them accountable for tangibly assisting underinvested communities. Her goal is to effectively eradicate the disconnect that organizations often unknowingly create between their good intentions and how they are received by the people who they aim to help.
