Welcome to the thirty-seventh episode of The Gap Minders! Today, we are speaking with the amazing Nick Macchione, who is the Agency Director of the Health & Human Services Agency in San Diego County!Listen to “Episode 37 | Nancy Sasaki, CEO, United Way of San Diego County, and Jose Cruz, CEO, San Diego Council On Literacy” on Spreaker.
In this episode, a broad ranging discussion takes place between our two hosts – two friends, two colleagues and two impactful leaders on literacy – Nancy Sasaki, the CEO of the United Way of San Diego County, and Jose Cruz, the CEO of the San Diego Council On Literacy. Nancy and Jose, who are so very instrumental in helping lead the charge for a more literate San Diego, speak about everything from literacy strategies and data informed decision making to community engagement and collaborative partnerships. The two gap minders, with their passion obvious to listeners, also spend time discussing various ongoing initiatives as well as a few potential new ones for San Diego.
Whether it is more Free Little Libraries or perhaps Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library (coming to California in mid-2023), Nancy and Jose are excited about what is to come for students in San Diego. And, as they point out, we need more resources than ever before to overcome the learning and literacy challenges brought on by the pandemic.
Thank you, Nancy and Jose, for your leadership, your love of literacy, your passion for service, and for bringing The Gap Minders to life!
