Emaleigh Doley is the Corridor Manager at Germantown United CDC, a positioned funded in-part by the Philadelphia Department of Commerce. A lifelong Germantown resident with deep understanding of both the history and present-life of the neighborhood, she is highly respected within the community, and known for the acclaimed W Rockland Street Project, a grassroots initiative to revitalize one city block. Her professional and civic work revolves around communication – how we build connections, the stories we tell, and how we share them. She has 8+ years of experience in communications and experiential programming, with a focus on messaging and audience engagement for civic, media, and cultural projects. She has produced many interactive immersive events, and community-building experiences, from 1,000+ conferences to block-level programs. Previous work experience that has greatly informed her approach to community engagement includes serving as: programming consultant with Mural Arts Philadelphia, the nation’s largest public art program; lead organizer and producer of the annual TEDxPhiladelphia conference from 2011-2015; and Audience Engagement Editor at Next City, a nonprofit media organization covering public policy and current affairs from an urbanist perspective.
When not entrenched in the revitalization of Germantown, she serves on the steering committee of the Design Advocacy Group, which encourages public discussion about design and advocates for design excellence in the architecture and physical planning of the Philadelphia region. She is also an advisory board member and graduate of the Philadelphia City Planning Commission’s Citizens Planning Institute
(CPI). Emaleigh holds a BA in English from The George Washington University, where she also studied film and African American history and culture. Connect with Emaleigh: @emaleigh on Twitter
