Executive Speaker Series #19: Pamela Good

YCP Detroit Executive Speaker Series is a free event every last Wednesday of the month in which executives share their professional and faith journeys with young professionals in their 20’s and 30’s, challenging them to ‘Work in Witness for Christ!’ Complimentary beer, wine, and appetizers are provided before the keynote.


Pamela Good is cofounder and CEO of Beyond Basics, a family-centered literacy nonprofit that provides holistic literacy programming, which gets children and adults reading on average in just 6 weeks. Under Good’s leadership, Beyond Basics has grown from a small organization to 2,000 volunteers, 50 staff and more than 100 partners. Beyond Basics has been highlighted in news stories and op-eds in the national and regional media including Forbes.com, The Weekly Standard, Dateline, Associated Press, Crain’s Detroit Business, DBusiness, Detroit News and Detroit Free Press, WJR-AM, and local TV stations. Since 1999, Beyond Basics has published more than 75,000 books with children, given more than 30,000 coats to those in need and helped more than 100,000 southeastern Michigan students. In October 2018, the nonprofit opened its inaugural Beyond Basics Family Literacy Center. Prior to Beyond Basics, Good launched a computer service business, served in various management positions at Electronic Data Services and after years in the workforce, she left to raise her family.
