Sachi Takahashi-Rial


Director of Partner Services

Superpower: Purpose-driven curiosity

Sachi is a nonprofit leader who drives social impact by building and managing partnerships, and empowering scrappy teams. At Listen4Good, she helps philanthropic and nonprofit partners meet their strategic goals through access to L4G’s robust set of feedback resources.

No stranger to high-quality feedback systems, Sachi previously worked at YouthTruth Student Survey, a project of the Center for Effective Philanthropy, where she led partnership development and coached school and district leaders through the process of interpreting stakeholder feedback and using it to accelerate improvements. As a part of her role, she also facilitated funder learning communities to explore ways of integrating student feedback into education philanthropy.

Earlier in her career, Sachi worked in education at the school, district, and state level, and for organizations ranging from a tech startup to a state department of education.

In her free time, Sachi enjoys volunteering in the community, particularly in politics. She co-chairs a chapter of a PAC and supports local campaigns.

Why Feedback?

In this moment when trust in our social institutions (nonprofits, government, media) is on the decline, it’s important for leaders to get actionable, honest feedback from those receiving services on the ground.
