Ryan Ewers is an organizational thought partner and strategist whose approach to life and work is greatly influenced by history, social science and social responsibility. Ryan’s approaches explore the balance of commonalities and differences as they occur between people and cultures. Understanding that the only constant is change, Ryan views himself not as an expert in any one area, but as a resource collaborator in many who is of service to others.
With a background in Organizational Psychology, Ryan founded the company Ewers & Mine, Inc. in 2010 and has been working in the organizational change space ever since. He has worked in public, private and academic institutions which continue to provide the drive to partner with clients in the pursuit of sustainable growth and evolution. Ryan has collaborated with multiple networks professionally having served as a Lead for Research and Development where he co-created strength-based assessments and taught courses on their applications.
In support of his wife Maggie’s career path, Ryan was trained as a Birth Doula. Though he is not actively working as a Doula, Ryan maintains a Doula’s mindset in his work. In hindsight growing up as a first-generation American in the South Bronx, first of his generation to graduate with a college degree and being thrusted by family and others into elite institutions in pursuit of the “American Dream”, the mindset of a Doula makes sense for Ryan. It’s an opportunity to help others reclaim body, mind and experiences while most importantly rewriting his own.
Many people have supported and invested in Ryan and he believes in paying it forward. He participates in youth activities serving as a mentor to adolescents, works as a NYS Youth Mental Health First-Aid Trainer, provides life & health and Medicare insurance counseling to underserved and senior populations as well as leads diversity and inclusion workshops.
