Activist, Community-Organizer and Social Impact Leader Christine Margiotta Named Social Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Brittingham Social Enterprise Lab for 2022-23 Academic Year
Margiotta will work with students and alumni to provide career advice and consult on their social entrepreneurial ideas and goals.
The BRITTINGHAM SOCIAL ENTERPRISE LAB at the USC MARSHALL SCHOOL OF BUSINESS is pleased to announce the appointment of Christine Margiotta as the 2022-2023 social entrepreneur-in-residence (SEIR). Executive Director of SOCIAL JUSTICE PARTNERS LOS ANGELES (SJPLA), Margiotta is the lab’s sixth SEIR working one-on-one with students in the USC MARSHALL MASTER OF SCIENCE IN SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP (MSSE) program as well as with program alumni.
"I'm thrilled to serve as the social entrepreneur-in-residence this year. I appreciate the creativity and commitment of MSSE students and alums I've met over the years, and I look forward to being a support on their journeys,” Margiotta said.
Margiotta will help students develop and assess social entrepreneurial ideas and goals. Passionate about channeling our collective power to create enduring justice and community, she brings people together in her own work to fuel systemic transformation and seeks to cultivate liberatory workplace practices within SJPLA and beyond. Margiotta launched SJPLA’s SYSTEMS CHANGE ACCELERATOR to bolster early-stage social justice initiatives and ANTI-RACISM FOR WHITE PEOPLE to support leaders in championing racial justice.
Throughout her career, Margiotta has leveraged a blend of community organizing, grantmaking and policy change to create progress on racial and economic justice, homelessness, and LGBTQ+ rights. Christine designed and led HOME FOR GOOD at United Way of Greater LA, an initiative to end homelessness that leveraged over $1 billion to create housing for 35,000+ Angelenos in her time there.
"I'm thrilled to serve as the social entrepreneur-in-residence this year. I appreciate the creativity and commitment of MSSE students and alums I've met over the years, and I look forward to being a support on their journeys.”

Said MSSE Program Director JJ Lee: “We are so excited to have Christine Margiotta as our SEIR!
