Introducing Kailee Scales, Managing Director of The Black Lives Matter Global Network (BLM), Black Lives Matter Network Action Fund and Black Lives Matter Global Network, Inc. Kailee has built a sound infrastructure around this global phenomenon and is focused on evolving the movement from a hashtag to a political and cultural powerhouse for Black people across the globe.
She has also helped pave the way for sustainable legacy building for BLM, launched its Arts+Culture platform, its presence in the fine art world, as well as created BLM’s WhatMATTERS2020, a civic engagement campaign targeted towards Black Millennial and Gen Z voters at risk of disenfranchisement in one of the most important election cycles in our lifetime.
Kailee Scales’ political and organizational development work spans nearly two decades in the U.S. and 14 countries throughout Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, and North and South America. Kailee’s dynamic career has focused on the start-up phases of progressive organizations at the intersection of global development and social justice.
Beginning her career as fundraiser and organizer for a Democratic Congressional candidate in Brooklyn, New York, Kailee has raised over $100 million and led domestic and international NGOs to address some of the world’s most progressive social and political issues. Most notably, she served as founding national director of Mentor USA and global coordinator of Mentor International, a drug-abuse prevention organization led by Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden, working in close conjunction with HMQ Silvia and United Nations leadership.
