Jasmine Sudarkasa

Chief Storyteller

Jasmine Sudarkasa builds: confidence, relationships, organizations and systems. As an independent executive consultant, she specialized in early stage projects and strategic pivots, supporting executive leaders from ideation to implementation. As the new Chief Storyteller at Love Now Media, she leverages systems and stories to build media products that resonate from Philadelphia to the world.

Most recently, she was the founding Executive Director of the Curve Foundation, an philanthropic organization dedicated to investing in lesbian and queer culture.

Prior to joining Curve, Jasmine served as the program Fellow for the Effective Philanthropy Group at the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, where she supported the foundation’s approach to effective philanthropy. In 2020, she designed and led a $15 million anti-racist grantmaking effort, a personal and career highlight.

Jasmine has been a capacity builder, development officer, trainer and cheesemonger – sometimes all at once. Before philanthropy, she served as a senior trainer on behalf of Girls Educational & Mentoring Services where she led a national training and technical assistance program on best practices for identifying and serving commercially sexually exploited and domestically sex-trafficked youth.
