Making sure an organization’s books are in order may not be the most visible role at a non-profit, but it is certainly one of the most important — so for today’s Black History Month post, we’re recognizing one of our unsung heroes at EHTP, Director of Finance Nyasha Manigault.
Nyasha is an accomplished executive with proven experience in all aspects of business and fiscal operations, with specialties including strategic planning, analysis and forecasting, project and program management, risk oversight and investment optimization.
After realizing her interest in math, she pursued a Bachelor of Arts in Statistics from Harvard University. She started her career at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, then began a long-standing career with American Express.
Aside from numbers, Nyasha has always had a passion for mentoring. In addition to joining the East Harlem Tutorial family in 2016, she dedicated 15 years to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. There she mentored teenage girls of color, with hopes of expanding her students’ world by encouraging them to explore the option of a college-bound track and opportunities outside of New York City.
We are grateful that Nyasha transitioned to the nonprofit sector and is leveraging her fiscal knowledge at EHTP to support our Scholars in East Harlem. Thank you, Nyasha, for adding so much to the community! #HistoryInTheMaking
