Bijal Desai-Ramirez

Co-Founder & COO

Bijal has worked with organizations old and new, large and small, and across sectors for 15+ years.  Over time, she has honed an interdisciplinary perspective and an integrated approach to solving big tangly problems.  Cross-hatch sales, marketing, research and analysis, strategy, organizational development, facilitation, and general management with work in healthcare, consumer packaged goods, education and youth development, diversity and inclusion, and consulting, and you’ll get a glimpse of her unique approach.

Above all, Bijal infinitely cares about people.  She demonstrates this in the way she knows best:  by building stuff – foundations, systems, processes, relationships – to make impact for the betterment of society, communities, workplaces, and life.

Bijal serves on several boards, including the Saint Louis Public Schools Foundation Board and the United Way of Greater St. Louis’ Women’s Leadership Society Cabinet.  She chairs the board of the Urban Sprouts Child Development Center.

Bijal lives in St. Louis’ University City with her spouse, David, their daughter, Sahana, and a second child and pet dog they have yet to adopt. (They’re there in spirit!)
