Vicky Foxworth joined ESC in December 2013. She is responsible for leading ESC’s consulting engagements in all our core services. She oversees all projects from planning through implementation and impact, and is deeply involved in managing client and consultant relationships to ensure high-quality service delivery. Vicky’s particular focus is the development and implementation of complex, multifaceted projects that combine several of our services, in which teams of ESC consultants work with multiple stakeholders across the organization in tailored, targeted engagements that facilitate true, systemic and sustainable change.
Before joining the ESC team, she was a Senior Manager of Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness in Talent Management at USC. In 2001, at the University of Maryland (UMD), she founded and directed the Center for Leadership and Organizational Change, an internal consulting department in the Office of the Provost. Vicky was also a Program Director in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at UMD for seven years where she focused on organizational change around issues of inclusion and equity. Her awards at UMD include Woman of Influence, Champion of Our Community (the LGBT organization that promoted social justice) and the President’s Service Award.
Her nonprofit experience includes working at the National Headquarters of the American Red Cross as a Training Coordinator and at the Foreign Student Service Council as a Program Coordinator. She was the Fund-Raising Board Chair of Free State Justice. She volunteered with Boat People SOS and is now on the Religious Education Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Church in Santa Monica.
She has master’s degrees from The George Washington University (Human Learning and Development) and the University of Maryland at Baltimore (Social Work).
Relatively new to the west coast, Vicky loves exploring southern California with her husband and daughter, hiking, reading and making mosaics.
