Dalia Wimberly, M.Ed., MPP

Director of Operations

Raised in McLean, Virginia, Dalia is a native of the Washington, DC Metro area. Growing up in such a diverse environment facilitated Dalia’s early and deep appreciation for social justice and equity.

Dalia continued to develop these interests as she began her career in education, serving in a variety of leadership and direct service roles with Duke University, Communities in Schools, the Emily K Center, and as an independent consultant. She focuses her professional pursuits on causes that marry her interest in education and social justice, working as a strategic leader, advocator, and connector to develop, enhance, and evaluate educational programs that serve traditionally marginalized students, families and communities.

Dalia earned her B.A. in sociology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, holds a Masters of Education from North Carolina State University and a Masters in Public Policy from Duke University. She is also an Education Pioneers Impact Fellow Alumna.

Dalia lives in Durham with her three sons and Alaskan Malamute dog where she enjoys DIY home improvement projects, traveling, cooking, and attending her boys’ sporting events.
