Alice Wong, Executive Director, NYC MEA, Responsible 100 List by City & State Magazine.
Job description. I have the honor of representing New York City public service employees as an advocate for labor and civil rights in my role as executive director of New York City Managerial Employees Association. We are catalysts for promoting public and agency policies that effect positive economic and social change for managerial employees. Working together with elected officials and appointed representatives, we strive to enhance equality, protect benefits and to be the voice representing nonunionized employees in New York City.
Defining social responsibility. Social responsibility means serving my community. I was appointed as a board member representing Manhattan Community Board District 4. This volunteer board represents the district’s residents, institutions, nonprofit and businesses’ common interests to city agencies and brings solutions to our district. I have learned so much in working together with my neighbors, who are equally committed, in creating positive direct impact for change to enhance the community we live in.
Best advice. Remember to be kind to yourself, love yourself and be true to yourself – because the longest relationship you will ever have – is the one you have with yourself.
