Nadia Ali

Founder and CEO

Nadia has nearly 20 years of experience working in a variety of settings with people from various educational, socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds. 

 

Her depth of experience spans program management, coalition building, leadership and workforce development, community outreach, health care reform and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) training and consulting.

 

She is passionate about health and racial equity and her work has primarily centered around increasing access to care in low-income and immigrant populations, creating leadership opportunities for underrepresented minorities, and increasing awareness and dialogue around health and racial equity. 

Nadia's commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion inspired her to launch Idea Labs. The word Idea in Idea Labs is an acronym for Inclusivity, Diversity and Equity in Action and the company strives to advance these core values in the workplace through training, leadership coaching and organizational strategy. Through Idea Labs she fosters a culture of innovation, collaboration and belonging in partnership with non-profit organizations, government institutions and small businesses. 

In her spare time, Nadia enjoys spending time with family and friends, cooking and baking, being outdoors, and building community.

Nadia's academic background includes studies in health policy and management, public health, and Spanish. Nadia is a graduate of New York University's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service and Rutgers University.
