Our Values

Interfaith America Team Testimonials

My favorite part about IA is our nurturing community. Every day is a learning process, and there is so much room and encouragement for growth personally and professionally. Everyone on the team is always available to help you learn, and they do so with so much love and respect. I feel like I’m home — comfortable and cared for — whenever I am at work.


At Interfaith America, I am privileged to work with talented colleagues who come from diverse educational and professional backgrounds – higher education, religion, business, nonprofit management, and more – to move forward a shared vision for our religiously diverse democracy. It is energizing to work for an organization that is both laser-focused on the mission and highly adaptable, where we are constantly learning from each other and from the field and innovating in new ways.

– Rebecca Russo, Senior Director of Higher Education Strategy

Working at IA is not just a job; it’s being part of a community of people focused on bringing our mission to life. We work on challenging, innovative projects that are setting a new course for how people can connect across shared values and deep differences to create a stronger Interfaith America.
