Standing room only at #Afrotech16. Remind me who says there's a pipeline problem to diversify tech?

Start bringing our divide together by denouncing racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia and transphobia! #trumptrumpshate #trumpchallenge

Shout out to the peaceful protesters in Oakland. Stay safe while taking a stand. We will be heard. #blacklivesmatter

They prefer to call it a fitness movement, but it kind of seems like a cult to some.


Cassi Wright, MBA


I help companies solve complex strategic, operational and cultural challenges. As a natural born motivator, I bring energy and alignment to problem solving. I focus on ensuring that the vision and strategy are in sync and well understood by the stakeholders behind them. Building on my Organizational Degree and MBA, I make certain that the organization is equipped with the structures, processes, culture and mindset to support execution.

I am naturally curious and constantly assessing what makes people tick and what influences their decisions, which provides valuable knowledge around buying habits, growth strategies, and partnerships. I know that leading with a purpose driven foundation and shared intentions are what truly engage and motivate an organization on both an individual and collective level.

My results-oriented leadership has built strong relationships and developed high-performing teams both in large-scale companies and small entrepreneurial businesses. In addition to domestic consulting, I have specialized internationally in Latin America and have lived and worked in Chile, Mexico, Brazil and the Dominican Republic, speaking both Spanish and Portuguese.

Key strength areas include: strategy consulting, strategic partnerships, relationship-based client service, project management, data analysis, business development, marketing/communications, and empowering teams.

In my role as an associate at BSR, I focus on stakeholder engagement and CSR strategies for companies within BSR’s extractives, consumer products, and information and communications technology practices.

Prior to BSR, I was a management consultant at Mars & Co., where I analyzed markets and industries to develop high-level strategies for global companies. I specialized in Latin America, with extensive work in Mexico and Brazil. I have also worked as a senior advisor at Centro Community Partners, a nonprofit providing business training and advisory services to underserved entrepreneurs. Fluent in Spanish and proficient in Portuguese, I served as Rotary ambassador in the Dominican Republic and was a Fulbright scholar in Mexico, working at Scotiabank.

I hold an M.B.A. from the Peter F. Drucker Graduate School of Management at Claremont Graduate University, and a B.A. in Organizational Development and Spanish from Claremont McKenna College.
