We are pleased to announce that Karen Anglade is joining StoryCorps as Managing Director, Human Resources. A native New Yorker, Anglade most recently was Director of HR and Administration at the Center for NYC Neighborhoods.
Anglade discovered her passion for mission-driven work in 2008 as an HR practitioner for the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Miami, following a 10-year career in advertising in Manhattan and a stint in the mortgage industry in South Florida. In 2014, she became HR Manager at the YMCA of South Florida. After graduating with a Masters in HR Management from Nova Southeastern University, Anglade moved back to Manhattan in 2017, where she has held a number of HR positions, including HR Generalist at Boyce Technologies and HR Manager at Upright Citizens Brigade, before joining the Center for NYC Neighborhoods. Anglade’s philosophy is that HR should work hard to take care of its people so that the organization can thrive.
Anglade received her undergraduate degree from Baruch College. The daughter of Haitian parents, she speaks fluent French and Kreyòl.
Anglade’s official start date with StoryCorps is February 21.
