Executive Portfolio Liaison
Stefanie Wong is passionate about fighting systems of oppression by any medium necessary. She is a Florida International University alumna who earned her BA in Psychology with a minor in Business and enriched her learning experience as an international exchange student at Victoria University in Melbourne, Australia.
Stefanie developed her multifaceted skillset in higher education at one of the largest and most diverse colleges in America, Miami Dade College. During her time there, Stefanie played a vital role in executing a strategic, college-wide systems change to build a culture of social innovation across the student experience, senior leadership and faculty teams, academic offerings, and college and community engagements. Simultaneously, her work has focused squarely on managing programs, projects, and initiatives to increase access to the arts, business development, college enrollment, and change-making education, primarily for BIPOC and LatinX communities. Additionally, Stefanie served as a Board Member of a local South Florida humanitarian organization focused on building a more equitable world for all.
At Build Up, Stefanie is excited to contribute to global social innovation beyond a higher education context. In her role, she provides key executive support to the CEO of the Build Up Companies and serves as a trusted advisor and partner to the CEO. She also leads, oversees, and provides critical support and management to special projects and initiatives while liaising with the leadership team and the Build Up team.
Stefanie currently lives in Miami and enjoys life as a Caribbean-cuisine-based vegan, a student of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and an avid beachgoer.
