Jonathan Gruber

Strategy Lead, Building

I lead Einhorn Collaborative’s Building strategy, connecting and amplifying the science, stories, and practical tools of an emerging coalition of actors working to realize the promise of a truly pluralistic America.

Most rewarding moment since joining Einhorn Collaborative
Stewarding the “post-election fund” we launched in 2017; we made grants to 35+ projects focused on helping people engage and collaborate across difference at an especially divisive time.

Something people may not know about me
I’ve spent most of my life in the Northeast, though I was born in Louisville, Kentucky and have a fondness for the Bluegrass State from my many visits with loved ones over the years.

Something that inspires me
“I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.” ― E.B. White

Before Einhorn Collaborative
I worked as a management consultant advising clients across sectors on strategy, organizational change, and culture; as director of education for a nonprofit that supports Holocaust rescuers and preserves their legacy; and as a teacher at a school in the English countryside.

  • Our Future is In Our Hands

A Call to Think Big and Bold About Our Future

It is easy to see how a gloomy outlook on the country and a cynical view of humanity conspire to stifle our collective imagination. Yet that capacity to envision and work toward better futures is most needed in times of upheaval and rapid change; that is, now.
