At TSNE, Lilo Altali leads a design-thinking lab to better understand how to serve low-resourced nonprofits. As a Syrian immigrant, Lilo’s lived experiences interacting with the nonprofits in his community have inspired his career. Previously, he served on the Leadership Team of Mill City Grows, a Lowell based community organization. He has also held roles as an Innovation Strategist at Commonwealth and on the Learning and Certification team at the Ethics and Compliance Initiative. Lilo teaches Change and Innovation Management at Nichols College and is a Project Management Lecturer at Northeastern University.
