The Square Pizza podcast focuses on the intersection of education, innovation, and diversity. We host and interview leaders doing incredible work around the country to ensure all students have access to an equitable education. The Square Pizza podcast is hosted by SchermCo, a social-impact implementation firm that offers strategic implementation and project management services to schools and education-focused organizations across the country.

Welcome back to another episode of the #squarepizzapod – a podcast about making the good things about school – even better.

Today’s episode is from our interview with Sil Ganzó. Sil is the Executive Director of ourBridge, an afterschool and summer program that offers refugee and immigrant children great experiences and opportunities to find out what they love to do and what they are really good at doing.

In this episode, we covered:

– Sil’s favorite Argentinian drink

– ourBridge’s response to COVID in order to support their students and families

– The challenges of hiring and fundraising as a non-profit leader

– The need for Charlotte to be more welcoming of immigrants and refugees and the importance of government leaders

Also, this episode was recorded on Zoom and you can check out the video at our Youtube page – @SchermCo
