Ashley Raggio is the executive director of Joint Venture’s Silicon Valley Talent Partnership (SVTP). SVTP tackles issues in Silicon Valley by leveraging the abundance of highly-skilled talent from corporate partners in public-private collaborations. As executive director, she manages SVTP’s pro bono partnerships and ensures that every project provides impact.
Born and raised in the Bay Area, Ashley completed her B.S. at the University of Oregon. She earned her Masters in Higher Education Leadership from San Jose State University. She joined the University staff to facilitate service-learning experiences in the classroom, campus leadership development programs, and the coordination of AmeriCorps students in service. Following her time in higher education, Ashley coordinated a volunteer program at Silicon Valley FACES. Service has always been a common thread throughout Ashley’s life. She has held multiple volunteer leadership roles and volunteers often with her family. Her value of service and community engagement inspired Ashley to start a division of the nonprofit Doing Good Together™ in Silicon Valley to encourage more families to raise children who care and give back.
Ashley is passionate about connecting skilled volunteers to projects that bring about change. Her experience collaborating with corporate, nonprofit, academia and the public sector gives her the skills to be effective in creating partnerships across sectors that deliver impact. Ashley’s strength is managing and delivering effective service programs that add value to the community and to volunteers.
