Meet Sara Dastagir: Executive Director of ICGT

The Islamic Center of Greater Toledo is proud to announce a new addition to our leadership team!

Sara Dastagir will be joining us in February as the Executive Director of the Center, working in collaboration with Council and reporting to the Council president.

Sara is a dedicated leader in her community with experience working in government management and community building.

Over the past three years, she served as the Assistant to the mayor of Toledo and most recently Deputy Director of the Human Relations Commission (HRC) for the City of Toledo. During her time at the City, Sara was instrumental in creating language access policies and procedures, working in collaboration with the legislative director to establish the HRC, and overseeing community-building initiatives.

In 2018, Sara joined the ICGT Council as the youngest member elected to the Council. She oversaw the redevelopment of the masjid’s website, redesigned the Center’s social media platforms, and led the online creative content team during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sara and her family are long-standing members of the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo. She is the daughter of the late Ghulam Dastagir and Saadat Dastagir, granddaughter of the late Hajji Ghulam Sediqe Ziaratjaie and the late Khadija Sediqe.

Sara serves the community on the Toledo Opera Community Engagement advisory board, Welcome Toledo-Lucas County Steering Committee, and EPIC Toledo advisory board.

Please join us in welcoming Sara to the team!
