Lynn first came to Slifka Center in 2011 and is excited to have come back to promote efforts which benefit our students, community, and mission. Her recent projects include consulting with an organization bringing Jewish and Arab youth together through classical music in Israel, and helping lead the successful resettlement of a large Syrian refugee family in conjunction with IRIS, the New Haven-based immigration services organization. After graduating from Harvard Lynn worked in banking and real estate finance in New York, with families which include some of Slifka Center’s earliest supporters. Later as Executive Director of the NYC Commission on the Status of Women she worked to strengthen diverse communities and has since served in professional and volunteer leadership roles for several non-profits. Lynn has considerable experience in developing alumni and parent programming for Ivy-plus institutions, and was a long-time member of the committee of trustees at the Hopkins School here in New Haven and is the past chair of the Horizons student enrichment program at Norwalk (CT) Community College.
