The All Good Work Foundation, a nonprofit social responsibility program for the flexible workspace industry, has expanded its Board of Directors with the appointment of two industry veterans.
Joe Brady of Instant Offices, and Andrea Pirrotti-Dranchak of Office Evolution, have joined the Foundation’s existing directors Frank Cottle, Nate Heasley, and Chris Steele, together with a team of advisors.
The Foundation, which launched in 2016, matches social impact organizations with donated workspace throughout the U.S., with a primary focus on New York, San Francisco and Silicon Valley.
Nate Heasley, co-founder and Executive Director of All Good Work Foundation, said:
“I’m very excited to have Joe and Andrea join the board. They both have valuable skill sets and connections that will help All Good Work Foundation meet our expansion goals and provide even more resources to social impact organizations in this time of need.”
Joe Brady is an experienced real estate professional with over 30 years in the sector. He joined the Instant Group in 2019 as CEO, Americas, from Walgreens, where he was head of real estate; prior to that he held several senior roles at JLL.
Andrea Pirrotti-Dranchak is the Chief Marketing and Development Officer at Office Evolution, the largest provider of locally owned and operated coworking locations in the U.S. An early coworking evangelist, Pirrotti-Dranchak’s 30-year career in sales, marketing and development includes work with start-ups and Fortune 500 companies.
Joe Brady commented:
“It is an honor to join the Board of Directors at All Good Work. All Good Work’s mission has never been more important or critical than it is right now. Providing connected, community-focused workspaces to mission-driven organizations helps productivity, networking, problem-solving, and a sense of balance between work and home life, ultimately enabling nonprofits use more of their financial resources to enact positive change.
“As the CEO Americas of The Instant Group, I look forward to developing connections and collaboration between the commercial real estate and nonprofit worlds for the greater good.”
Andrea Pirrotti-Dranchak commented:
“With an exemplary track record for matching nonprofits with flexible workspace, All Good Work will continue to have a transformative role in the success of numerous nonprofits. I look forward to sharing my industry knowledge, connections and perspective with my fellow Board members and I’m thrilled to be a part of All Good Work’s ongoing mission.
“Now more than ever, social impact organizations need support from corporate America. I am ready to reach out to my industry colleagues to further advance connections and opportunities for well-deserving nonprofits.”
Since it was founded in 2016, the All Good Work Foundation has connected more than 100 social impact organizations with donated workspace in coworking spaces and business centers through its Residency Program.
In 2020, the Foundation partnered with online booking platform Upflex, to enable flexible space operators to fulfill demand for short-term workspace rentals. Faced with the ongoing challenges of the pandemic, the drop-in service provides a valuable amenity for local community organizations, foundations, and nonprofits, who need flexible access to private workspace without the ongoing cost or commitment of office rental.
