Leslie Lindo

Director of Community Engagement
Oakland, CA
Leslie has directed the majority of her professional career towards solutions that mitigate the negative impact of the built environment on social networks and the integrity of natural systems. She became the first Certified Sustainable Building Advisor in the state of Arizona and co-founded Ikoloji Sustainability Collaborative to advance a sustainable society through education and economic development.

After 5 years of training industry professionals in sustainability strategies, Leslie shifted her attention towards work that yields broader community impact. This led her to co-found Project Rising, an incubator for infill and adaptive reuse projects, to curate place-based businesses that revitalize blighted spaces in urban centers. Leslie's work with Project Rising ended up being the perfect runway for her work with BALLE, where she develops products and platforms to spread the solutions for creating healthy and equitable local economies that are being modeled throughout BALLE's network of innovative community leaders and funders across North America.
