Jill Gottfred-Sohoni

CEO + Lead Consultant
Circle Root Collaborative

Starting as a public school teacher in Brooklyn, Jill Gottfred Sohoni has been working in the social impact space in Illinois and New York City for the past 17 years. After a decade of working in education policy, advocacy, and community organizing, she founded Circle Root Collaborative on the belief that people directly impacted by inequities, alongside values-driven non-profit and government leaders, are best equipped to develop solutions to our most pressing social injustices. Circle Root Collaborative supports people, organizations, and government to co-create solutions that address a community’s most pressing challenges. We believe solving community challenges starts with designing and facilitating an inclusive process that centers people most impacted, and builds trusting relationships across the system. We provide a collaborative approach where the solution-building process is just as important as the outcome. Jill lives with her partner, Aneesh, in Oak Park, IL and is a proud mom of Naya (7) and Naveen (4).
