Hamidou Sylla


Hamidou works with Children’s Aid to develop a comprehensive community impact strategy for the South Bronx and identify concrete ways for the organization to adapt the strategy in other priority communities across New York City.

Prior to joining Bennett Midland, Hamidou planned and executed high-impact diversity and equity programming and intercultural learning opportunities for students as a program manager at Northeastern University. As part of a team effort, he also led a mixed methods research analysis of environmental and political conditions in Colombia and Ecuador. His work was instrumental in shaping the World Wildlife Fund’s successful global river dolphin conservation campaign, which culminated in a landmark declaration endorsed by 11 countries.

Hamidou holds a Master’s degree in Public Affairs from Brown University and a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Francophone Studies from St. Lawrence University.
