Erin Scott is the Deputy Development Director at Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ). Before joining SURJ, she co-founded the Ohio Women’s Alliance with Rhiannon Carnes after searching for a community to support and invest in women and femme leaders in grassroots spaces. The formation of this coalition came after successfully launching a networking group for young women in central Ohio, the Bad Bish Network, which was created to connect women to leadership opportunities, mentors, and each other.
Previously, Erin has worked to build a more just and vibrant Ohio through consulting and working with the Ohio Progressive Collaborative, LEAD Ohio, the Ohio Democratic Party, and The Columbus Foundation in the community research and grants management department. Erin teaches in the undergraduate and graduate programs for the nonprofit studies program at her alma mater, The Ohio State University’s John Glenn School of Public Affairs, where she earned her Master of Public Administration degree. Erin is a volunteer, donor, and advocate for organizations championing women and girls across the world.
