About the Speaker

Dr. Kathryn Quick is an Associate Professor and chair of the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, where she is chair of the public and nonprofit management and leadership area.

Trained in public management and urban planning, she works in a variety of policy content areas, the common thread being identifying practices and processes that improve equity and inclusion. Dr. Quick researches effective approaches by studying professionals doing their work and shares the lessons learned with community leaders and students, with a particular interest in building capacity for cross-sectoral leadership and leadership to advance equity. She also continually hones her own craft by practicing what she studies and teaches through community service. Originally from rural Pennsylvania, Dr. Quick worked as an environmental advocate and urban planner in Indonesia for eight years and as a community development manager for two California cities for six years. She holds a PhD in Planning, Policy, and Design from the University of California, Irvine.
