About

My name is Eris Eady (she|they)

I’m obsessed with helping people reach their personal, business, professional and organizational goals. Sitting at the intersection of arts and activism, I revel in using multimedia art, leadership development and service learning to effect change in the City of Cleveland and beyond. This has been my passion for over twenty years. 

 

As an executive coach, I work with individuals at every stage of their careers to realize their goals. As an artist and organizer, I use poetry and creative non-fiction to tell compelling stories. And as an advocate, I work with survivors to prioritize healing. 

I currently serve as Chief Equity and Learning Officer for Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio. I love corny jokes, I’m the pet parent to Bayard Ruxpen the Cat and I’m a proud member of Alpha Zeta Gamma Sorority, Incorporated.
