We are delighted to welcome aboard our new Executive Director, Robyn Brentano, former director of The Tibet Fund, beginning September 4. Quoting our Board Chair Diana Rose: “We feel very lucky and optimistic about having Robyn at the helm, steering us into our second decade of evolution. She brings to the Institute a wide range of mission-critical skills and experience leading non-profits and advancing key social change fields. Robyn’s passion for and commitment to this work dovetails with our needs now as our retreats and initiatives expand.” You can read a bio of Robyn here.
We’d also like to express our thanks to our outgoing interim executive director Beth Schecter, an expert in non-profit organizational transition who ably led the Institute and prepared it for new leadership over the last nine months.
