Our People

Meet the team behind The Rhapsody Project

Leadership Team + Faciliators

The Rhapsody Project is led collaboratively by the folx highlighted below, remaining accountable to one another in a manner that reflects the values of our organization. Rather than establishing a sole “director,” we put trust in each leader to make decisions within their purview, and meet weekly to consult with this team to make major decisions or gather input and strategize about any challenging elements of our work.
