Get to know the Table's new Executive Director, Meg Mikolajczyk!
2021 was a year full of change and growth–we know that all too well at the Table! In September, we welcomed Meg Mikolajczyk as our new executive director. Meg joined us in this new role as a longtime champion of and as a visionary leader in the Table's work. She was a founding member with the Table, and a board member since 2019. Prior to joining the Table staff, Meg served as the Deputy Director and Legal Counsel for Planned Parenthood North Central States and several of its ancillaries.
"Meg is a tenacious leader with nearly a decade of success in public policy, electoral, and organizing spaces,” said Nebraska Civic Engagement Table Board President Katie Weitz, PhD. “She is a founding member of the Table and no stranger to the work. We were impressed with her vision for the future, her expressed care and concern for the success and growth of staff and members, and ultimately, her passion for the mission and what she believes is possible in Nebraska to engage and strengthen the Rising American Electorate."
Going into 2022, Meg looks forward to continuing to use her extensive experience and expertise in public policy, advocacy and organizing to deepen the power of our network and our communities. Under Meg’s leadership, the Nebraska Civic Engagement Table team is committed to growing programming and supporting underrepresented Nebraskans at this pivotal moment for our democracy.
“As a Table member, I've been proud to be part of the work and excited to see the direction the staff and members have taken the organization during its first five years,” Meg said. “There is critical work ahead as we take the next steps to advance democracy reform - work that would not be possible without the strong foundation envisioned and built by the leadership before me and all the people who are part of this exceptionally talented network and team.”
