Welcome to our new board members! April 20, 2011Posted by Science Club for Girls in SCFG News.
“This is one of the most exciting events in Science Club for Girls’ seventeen year history”, said Science Club for Girls co-founder Beth O’Sullivan. Last week, Joseph X. Donovan, Kimberly Dwyer and Laura Major joined Science Club for Girls’ (SCFG) Board of Directors.
Laura Major is an engineer who is leading the Human-System Collaboration Group Leader at C.S. Draper Laboratory, and was a mentor-scientist at the Cambridgeport School for several years. She loved “seeing the transformation that occurred in the girls over the course of the year.” She was also a contributor to our Letters to My Young Self project.
Joseph Donovan is a tax attorney at Sullivan & Worcester and had served as Deputy General Counsel of the Massachusetts Department of Revenue. He was drawn to SCFG after hearing our executive director speak at an event at Novartis a couple of years ago.
Kimberly Dwyer is well-attuned to Science Club for Girls’ mission, since she thinks that “the greatest gift to girls is the gift of confidence. It is important to instill in them that anything is possible.” She is the Managing Director at Atlantic Trust Private Wealth Management.
The three have been inaugural members of our Ambassador program since last summer, acting as donor-advocates. The incorporation of current Ambassadors onto the board was based on the recommendation of Harvard Business School Board Fellows Deeksha Hebbar, Meera Krishnan, Margaret Miller and Yukiko Sakai. The board fully embraced the Fellows’ suggestion.
“Their personal dedication to our mission, their professional achievements and leadership, as well as their diverse networks will augment the board and contribute to a great team”, said Uche Amaechi, board chair of SCFG.
