Sheri Smith is the founder and CEO of the Indigo Education Company and the Indigo Impact Initiative 501(c)3. Indigo, established in 2013, has the vision of catalyzing a learner-centered education system that cultivates innovation, entrepreneurship, and empathy. A lifelong entrepreneur, Sheri was integral in starting a metals distributor, coaching and consulting firms, and running a small retail housewares company.  In 1998, Sheri designed the first website hosted at the US Department of State for Vital Voices, a global women’s rights initiative. Introduced to assessment technology for hiring and employee development in her early 20’s, Sheri is an expert in these tools, which are used to build high-performing teams, coach leaders, and align human capital to the goals of an organization. Indigo uses these same concepts to engage students, empower educators, and transform schools. Sheri has spoken at various conferences, authored two books, conducts research, and authors papers. She graduated magna cum laude from American University with a B.A. in International Studies, and holds an M.A. from Georgetown University in Communication, Culture and Technology.
