Amanda Kathryn Roman is a lifelong convener and builder of infrastructure. She is known as a forward-thinking executive who sees how things can be improved and effectively aligns human, social, natural, and financial capital to move towards that better vision.

A provocative change agent who has been scaling disruptive models for three decades, Amanda challenges status quo thinking with intentional approaches to systemic evolution and cultural translation. She has led four successful organizational turnarounds while undergoing three significant shifts on her own leadership journey: religion to role modeling in her teens, politics to policy in her 20s, and endgame to ecosystem in her 30s.

Her coachsultancy, AKR Collaborations, advises CEOs and senior leadership teams on cultivating innovative cultures rooted in care and focused on growth. Amanda specializes in building systems, growing people, and curating organizational cultures guided by her life’s mission to be a disruptor for dignity. Amanda collaborates with business leaders, academics, thought leaders, philanthropists, elected officials, and social changemakers to design and operationalize sustainable workflows and learning exchanges that increase individual capacities, performance, and social impact across stakeholder ecosystems.

She currently serves as senior consultant, strategic and innovation support for social sector philanthropists at Calliope Advisors; producer and co-host of the Oxford Economics of Mutuality Global Forum with Paul Polman; senior consultant on operational implementation and social impact for EoM Investment Advisors; strategic director for Vine & Fig Tree; creative partner in Ubuntu Living; executive tutor for Saïd Business School Executive Education program; and facilitator of the Changemakers Growth Formula course.

In service to creating spaces for changemakers to have courageous conversations and take bold action, Amanda co-founded 3 regenerative organizations to catalyze and drive systemic shifts in civil society through Living Room Conversations, a nonprofit sharing an open-source conversation framework proven to build bridges across divides of politics, age, gender, race and nationality; the public sector through Bridge Alliance, a coalition of 100+ organizations dedicated to advancing the healthy self-governance movement in America through open-minded collaborations that embrace differences, honor the citizen voice, and focus on solutions; and the private sector through Institute for Corporate Transformation, a firm that equips intrapreneurs to transform their company by expanding the CEO’s definition of success, creating alignment with senior leaders and the board, engaging employees and other key stakeholders, and rewiring operational systems.

Additionally, she co-created and co-facilitated the Conscious Capitalism consultant certification program as well as designed the curriculum, catalyzing a growing global network of elite consultants working together to accelerate the transition to stakeholder-centric business models.

An adventure-seeking wanderlust woman, Amanda has enjoyed living on both coasts of the United States and working in every state across America. A fierce momma bear, she also cherishes dance parties and road-trips with her three magical children. Amanda loves spending time in the great outdoors, laughing big belly laughs with lifelong friends, enjoying good food in community while drinking red wine (or prosecco… or whiskey… or mezcal… or espresso), dancing whenever the mood strikes her, running marathons, and listening to classic rock while on the go.
