An Unlikely Path

Fascinated by culture and mythology, Molly has a BA in religion and is an advocate for interfaith cooperation and leadership. Today, she finds that her experience studying world traditions and cultures inspires her to recognize and leverage the power of culture and values-based leadership in the workplace. As the focus of her capstone project, she interviewed new hires in multiple industries to explore the role of organizational storytelling in onboarding.

Fun Fact

Molly’s last name is pronounced ‘Freed.’ It’s a German spelling, but she doesn’t mind if it’s mispronounced as it’s not really her name. And although she speaks the language, she’s not of German heritage. Molly’s grandparents were displaced after being liberated from Nazi concentration camps at the end of WWII, receiving shelter in Germany. Their last name changed from Gelberman to Fried due to the US immigration papers they received four years later.
