Common Ground is AKR Collaborations’ business.

Amanda Kathryn Roman, president, has nearly 20 years of experience inspiring and building broad coalitions and leading teams with diverse stakeholders. Amanda’s passionate pursuit of service to others started in her home state of New Jersey; her work took her throughout all 50 states and led to a decade in Washington, D.C. Roman’s extensive on-the-ground experience across the country has taught her that for many, the missing piece is finding common ground. Amanda’s innate ability to identify, educate, and motivate others to join together and work toward a common vision is evident by her successful track record. Collaboration empowers transformative results for all.
