Francisca Williams-Oni serves as Senior Director, Advisory Services. She spearheads projects focused on market-level changes in industries with expertise in client engagement and project and stakeholder management. She brings years of experience advocating for marginalized populations, including coordinating statewide programs at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. Her passion for integrating her public health skills with workforce development was ignited when she saw how frequently financial barriers prevent families of color from accessing necessary healthcare. She finds great fulfillment in working towards economic justice by collaborating with employers to refine their hiring practices and elevate overlooked young adults for career-track jobs.
In her downtime, she enjoys reading, dancing, and music. She graduated with honors from Seton Hall University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. She then obtained her Master of Public Health degree from Boston University with a dual focus in Global Health and Maternal & Child Health.
