Full Name                 Carla Harris


Title                          Executive Director
Carla joined the Pilates Method Alliance as Executive Director and management consultant in February 2021. In this role, she oversees all administrative and operational work of the organization, guiding our efforts as we work to enhance member value, celebrate the diversity of the Pilates community, create a highly functioning and representative board, and support PMA staff. Carla will also work with the PMA Board and staff to find our next Executive Director. Carla has a 20+ year history helping organizations serve clients better by focusing on the dynamics of workplace culture and cultivating synergy across teams. At The People Institute, she leads the charge as CEO to shift the focus from the bottom line to the people who form the heartbeat of any organization. In 2020, Carla hosted the Racial Awareness & Cultural Equity (R.A.C.E.) Town Halls to address the lack of structural diversity in companies, government agencies, and community organizations. As a result of the town halls, The People Institute created the Shift the Culture of Corporate Diversity Challenge which is a six-month challenge companies can accept to proactively move forward in becoming a 21st Century Workplace. The PMA will participate in this Challenge.
