As the Director of Job Preparation, Bishara works with local, regional and national partners to seed and develop innovative solutions to workforce challenges, with the goal of building evidence of what works, driving systemic improvements, and advancing more equitable outcomes in income and employment. She previously oversaw the policy and advocacy agenda for Towards Employment, a workforce organization serving Greater Cleveland. Bishara continues to leverage that experience and her relationships to connect with decision-makers nationally on the importance of provider and job candidate voice when designing policy and programming. She thinks of herself as an intrapreneur within the workforce ecosystem and is committed to pursuing policies and practices that support economic mobility for residents in Northeast Ohio. In her free time, you might see her at a Cleveland Browns game, the Cleveland Museum of Art’s MIX events, or enjoining the Cleveland Metroparks.
