Bio—

Bethaney Bree Wilkinson has spent more than a decade exploring the intersections of community, racial justice, and social change–as a writer, leader and social entrepreneur.

In 2013, Bethaney co-founded Atlanta Harvest, a high-production economic development farm on a mission to create jobs and strengthen neighborhood economies. In 2015, Bethaney also founded G.Race Dialogues, a faith and community-based initiative designed to support people pursuing racial reconciliation.

After leaving the world of urban agriculture behind, in 2017, Bethaney joined the team at Plywood People, a non-profit in Atlanta leading a community of startups doing good. On the Plywood People team, Bethaney designs and leads creative events, builds organizational partnerships and spearheads DEI (diversity, equity, & inclusion) initiatives.
