Colleen Echohawk
CEO, Eighth Generation

The path to success is seldom a straight line. In this inspiring episode, Colleen Echohawk talks about the experiences that shaped her life, beginning with her upbringing amongst her supportive tribal family in Alaska (which coincidentally was very close to Juliana’s), how the decision to attend a community college was so vital to her learning journey, and the invaluable guidance she received from her mentors. Colleen talks about how the power of community, of belonging, and following her personal motto to "drive for impact and let the rest follow," shaped a successful career that took her from public health research, to leading a non-profit, to running for mayor of Seattle, and to her current role as CEO of Eighth Generation.
