Cassie Haynes, JD, MPH
Cassie has been a leader in social innovation and business strategy for over a decade, holding executive leadership positions in government and nonprofit sectors. She co-founded Resolve Philly alongside Jean Friedman-Rudovsky in 2018, frustrated by Philadelphia’s stagnant social mobility and energized by the role that journalism could play in driving equitable solutions to some of our deepest social challenges.
In the years since, Resolve’s portfolio of work has grown and Cassie has become a national speaker, thought leader, and coach on diversity and belonging in newsrooms, shared leadership, sowing narrative change, and building equitable organizational structures. She consults with newsrooms and academic institutions across the country, in addition to teaching Policy Communications at the University of Pennsylvania School of Social Policy and Practice. Cassie is a Boston Marathoner, a record-holding powerlifter, and a blue belt in Brazilian Jiujitsu.
