This case study developed by our Network Leadership Innovation Lab focuses on Sarita Gupta, Executive Director of Jobs With Justice. In addition to directing those organizations, Sarita plays a leadership role in a web of networks within and beyond the labor movement, including the Global Grassroots Justice Alliance; National Day Labor Organizing Network; National Domestic Workers Alliance; Pushback Network; Right to the City; and UNITY. To complete the case study, we conducted in-depth interviews with Sarita, as well as with 12 of Sarita’s colleagues, collaborators and funders. From these interviews, we sought to distill a set of principles for effective network leadership, and to explore how Sarita’s work embodies those principles.
