Investing in Tomorrow's Leaders: Neisha Springer

Neisha Springer, VMLY&R New York director for global learning and development, lives by the phrase, “For whom much is given, much is required” (Luke 12:48). For her, that means taking her superpower and sharing it with the world. With more than 15 years of HR and talent development experience, Neisha uses her superpower of fostering connection and talent to serve as a member and editor of Jack and Jill of Brooklyn and serve on the foundation committee of Tomorrow’s Leaders NYC.

Jack and Jill of Brooklyn is a local chapter under the national Jack and Jill of America organization that works with local families to provide better educational resources and leadership skills and improve quality of life. Neisha has been a part of the organization for six years and currently serves as an age group chair, hosting and planning events for that group. A year ago, she won an election to become editor, and she now manages the chapter’s public relations, branding, and storytelling. She also writes chapter newsletters and creates event fliers. Her favorite parts of her role are the creative work and celebrating the program’s graduates.

Through Jack and Jill, Neisha found Tomorrow's Leaders NYC four years ago, an organization that aims to help students overcome social, emotional, and academic challenges. Before joining the foundation committee officially, Neisha wanted to help champion the organization through a grant. Ultimately the organization did not receive this grant, but nonetheless, Neisha took the opportunity to get involved, increase the organization’s impact and gain more funding. Neisha now helps Tomorrow’s Leaders NYC by advising on business, board engagement, and Talent Management matters as a part of its Board of Trustees. With her expertise, Neisha was able to secure affordable low-cost benefits for all employees.

For Neisha, giving back to her community was a no-brainer. In fact, philanthropic work runs in her family. Her mother had a role protecting children and her grandmother was in social work, and because of this, Neisha has always been attracted to people who serve and give back. That is why these organizations and their missions are so important to her

“I do this for the underserved community that may have fallen behind in school,” Neisha said. “No child should suffer, and my job is to make sure they are present so they can learn.”
