Meet Our New Board Member: Zanele Mutepfa-Rhone

We are happy to be growing our board here at Bradley Angle, so we welcome Zanele Mutepfa-Rhone! Zanele is a diversity strategist, speaker, and activist. Inspired by a lineage of women leaders in her family, she is the founder of Here to Stay – a women’s experiential series celebrating the stories of change-making women in the world.

From working for Anderson Cooper at CNN to building her diversity, equity, and inclusion consulting collective, Zanele is a recognized thought-leader in her field. The Portland Business Journal named Zanele one of the “Most Influential Women in Oregon” for her creative and community-focused spirit propelled her to contribute to notable initiatives and brand strategies worldwide. With company clients such as Nike, Expensify, Snapchat, and Avamere Family of Companies, Zanele manages a portfolio of diverse clients and relentlessly proposes disruptive ideas that promote diversity and advocate for every community’s voice and identity to be represented.

She shares, “My entire personal and professional journey – I’ve made it my life’s work to use my roles to bring awareness to inequities and hardships experienced in public spaces like boardrooms and workplaces. Still, I’m incredibly passionate about those experienced in the privacy of our own homes, too. Domestic violence is one of those experiences that, while many might miss among friend groups, it’s imperative to keep community lifelines like Bradley Angle uplifted and at the community’s forefront. Hence, people know that they are a resource for them. I chose to be a  part of the board to do my part in making sure Bradley Angle continues to be a recognized pillar in our community and a haven for those experiencing domestic violence.”

We are so happy to have you as apart of our team and look forward to how you will help us further our mission!
