Who We Are
Who We Are
Nicole Grant, Executive Director, Staff Collective member
Nicole joined 350 Seattle in November 2021 after gaining tremendous strategic grounding and practical knowledge in her 20 years in the labor movement. In her time as Executive Secretary at the Martin Luther King County Labor Council, she led a transition that helped to make the organization far more focused on racial, gender, and climate justice—while also invigorating its commitments to the need for working people to have a “great life in greater Seattle”.
Nicole is a journeyman electrician with IBEW 46, where she also served as the Executive Director of the Certified Electrical Workers of Washington. She holds an electrical engineering degree from George Brown College in Toronto and a bachelor’s degree at the University of Washington in Politics, Economy, and Law.
“The chance to make Seattle the greenest Green New Deal city in the nation while creating thousands of union jobs in electrification and other climate conscious infrastructure is irresistible,” she says. “My hope is that unions and organizations focused on climate and racial justice will continue to work together as often as possible to make our world a better place for everyone, and to secure the environmental justice our communities need to thrive into the future.”
