Alicia Korten

Head of The Culture Company and award-winning author

Alicia helps clients (like the Ford Foundation, the International Monetary Fund, and the United Nations) achieve growth turn arounds, as well as "best place to work" awards.

As a young adult, Alicia took a life-changing trip to Panama’s Darien Gap, where she witnessed the meetings the Emberá and Wounaan tribes were holding to write a constitution for the governance of their semi-autonomous lands. Inspired, she worked with them for seven years. Returning to the U.S., she drew on what she had learned about building tribes to shape highly engaged purpose-driven workforce cultures.
