Patrick Toohey

Program Associate

Patrick joined Declare in July of 2020 as the Program Associate, coordinating with speakers and team members to ensure that Declare’s weekly events are the best they can be. Beyond event logistics, Patrick works closely with the Communication and Customer Success teams to promote quality programming, as well as collaborating on any project he can get his hands on. He has deep-seated passions for social justice and storytelling which are present in all of his work.

Patrick graduated magna cum laude from Colgate University with a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and Spanish Literature. He received high honors for his thesis on the socialization of liberal values in the EU, and he is obsessed with all things political. When he’s not going on long runs and listening to podcasts, Patrick can be found volunteering with campaigns and local nonprofits in his home city of Columbus, Ohio.
