Bethaney Bree Wilkinson has spent more than a decade exploring the intersections of community, racial justice, and social change–as a writer, leader and social entrepreneur. 

In 2013, Bethaney co-founded Atlanta Harvest, a high-production economic development farm on a mission to create jobs and strengthen neighborhood economies. In 2015, Bethaney also founded G.Race Dialogues, a faith and community-based initiative designed to support people pursuing racial reconciliation. 

After leaving the world of urban agriculture behind, in 2017, Bethaney joined the team at Plywood People, a non-profit in Atlanta leading a community of startups doing good. On the Plywood People team, Bethaney designs and leads creative events, builds organizational partnerships and spearheads DEI (diversity, equity, & inclusion) initiatives. She also leads a project called The Diversity Gap, an initiative exploring equity-centered institutional change.

With degrees in Education, Community Building/Social Change, and Theology, Bethaney is passionate about amplifying solutions to challenges facing diverse communities.
