Sister Erin Zubal, an Ursuline Sister of Cleveland, is Chief of Staff at NETWORK. In this role, she leads internal coordination and integration of teams and operations to advance NETWORK’s mission. Sister Erin is the first person to serve in this position and brings a depth of knowledge and experience in education, social work, and public policy to the role. Sister Erin served for 15 years as a social worker and educator in Catholic elementary and high schools in the Diocese of Cleveland. She holds a Masters in Social Work Administration from Case Western Reserve University and a Masters in Educational Administration from Ursuline College. Sister Erin knows the importance of advocating for systemic change to address the needs of people and communities who are marginalized by our current systems and structures. She believes that the best way to do that is to listen to the realities and lived experiences of people in our own communities—and then make sure our elected officials hear those stories and legislate for the common good.
