Guided by their common beliefs that people are good and capable, and that societal well-being is accomplished through empowered individuals, adaptive, aligned communities and accountable institutions, Pam co-founded The Omidyar Group with Pierre Omidyar.
The Omidyar Group creates, funds and fosters a diverse collection of independent organizations and initiatives that place bets on new ideas and creative strategies in five main areas: Accountability & Governance, Capital Investments & Technology, Courageous Leadership, Engaged & Resilient Societies, and Media. While each independent organization has the freedom to pursue what they believe has potential, they are united in a collaborative vision to improve the lives of people and societies.
Pam has a bachelor’s degree in biology from Tufts University, a master’s in plant molecular genetics from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and is a perpetual learner. She serves on several advisory and trustee boards, loves quilting and being in and on the ocean.
