Elizabeth (Liz) Ngonzi (USA)

Founder / Executive Director, The International Social Impact Institute, City University of New York

Liz Ngonzi is a New York City-based international speaker, educator, executive coach, and consultant who recently founded the International Social Impact Institute (ISII) at Hunter College, City University of New York. She founded ISII to develop nimble, focused, creative and well-networked change makers to help guide the global social sector forward; to enhance the access of non-profit organisations and social enterprises to the kinds of resources, knowledge and networks that will enable them to rebound from the setbacks they have experienced during the global pandemic; and to facilitate collaboration across sectors and geographies and with participants whose voices have previously been missing from the sector. As an educator, consultant, and executive coach, she enables non-profits and social impact-driven leaders to increase their impact by more effectively telling their brand stories and engaging stakeholders across digital and traditional channels, and geographies. She has delivered courses and training to thousands of professionals from organisations on six continents. Her clients have included academic institutions, associations, human rights and youth development organisations, and multilateral agencies. She previously served as the turnaround CEO of the North America representative of a Nelson Mandela-endorsed and South Africa-based youth development organisation.
