Bike East Bay’s staff and board of directors are both sad and excited to share that Executive Director Ginger Jui will be leaving their position at the end of the year. While we will sorely miss Ginger’s big laugh and enthusiastic leadership over the past eight years (including the last four as Executive Director), we don’t have to say goodbye yet. Ginger will remain Executive Director through December 2022 and play a crucial role in supporting the organization’s leadership transition.
Rather than rehiring a traditional Executive Director, Bike East Bay will transition to leadership by Co-Executive Directors (Co-EDs). We will hire a brand new position, the Co-Executive Director of Mobility Justice, and promote current Operations Director Jill Holloway to the position of Co-Executive Director of People and Operations. This leadership transition is an opportunity for Bike East Bay to deepen our commitment to transportation justice and racial equity in bicycle advocacy while also investing in stability and resilience as an organization.
The Co-Executive Director of Mobility Justice will add new expertise to the advocacy team’s core strengths of leading campaigns for safe bicycling infrastructure, transportation funding ballot measures, and bicycle-friendly policies. As Bike East Bay members and supporters, you understand and are passionate about urgent regional issues that intersect with bicycle advocacy – including housing, displacement, climate change, and racially biased police enforcement. In the coming months, we’re excited to bring on a talented new leader to continue our momentum in advocating for equitable and sustainable mobility in the East Bay.
And what will Ginger get up to next?
Ginger says, “I look forward to taking time off and hitting up my many friends at Bike East Bay and beyond for bike camping, rock climbing, and many more fun adventures in the mountains. I hope to return stoked for another crack at nonprofit leadership!”
