Erin Roberts brings over ten years of experience to EPIP, with a focus on helping organizations tell their stories. Her career includes stints at The Paley Center for Media, WNET Public Media, and Public Health Solutions (PHS), where she was responsible for print and online newsletters, communications supporting the organization's annual fundraising event and year-end campaign, and materials for programs ranging from Neighborhood WIC centers to HIV prevention research groups. Since moving to the Washington, DC area in late 2016, she has primarily worked as freelance communications and development consultant for nonprofits, balancing her work for EPIP with projects for clients including North Star Fund, Catholic Volunteer Network, and the Yale University Alumni Task Force on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
Erin began her career in the media industry after graduating with a B.A. from Yale University in Theater Studies and an M.A. from Syracuse University in Television/Radio/Film, but soon found that her volunteer work with organizations like the National Association for Multi-Ethnicity in Communications and the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network - New York Chapter was more appealing, prompting her switch from the for-profit world to the social sector.
In her spare time, Erin writes and reads speculative fiction (she earned an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Southern New Hamshire University in 2018), volunteers with the Yale Alumni Association in several capacities related to their ongoing DEI work, and sings a lot of karaoke.
