New York, November 26 -- The Humpty Dumpty Institute is pleased to announce that Jennifer Diamond has joined its Board of Directors. Ms. Diamond is President of the Diamond Family Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that develops unique methods to improve and increase access to education and healthcare, by supporting those who fall outside traditional, government-sponsored assistance programs. As President, Jennifer helps determine the direction and mission of the organization, sets the strategy for how to best tackle issues most important to the foundation, reviews results from past projects, and continually seeks compelling new philanthropic opportunities to explore.
Under Jennifer’s leadership since its establishment in 1997, the Diamond Family Foundation has supported a range of projects that particularly emphasize educational development as a vehicle for poverty reduction. Examples of missions the Foundation has funded include research projects aimed at developing gifted and talented primary school programs in the USA, financial literacy training programs in the UK, and campaigns supporting HIV education and awareness in the USA and sub-Saharan Africa.
Jennifer holds a B.Sc. from Michigan State University and an M.A. in Anthropology from University of London. She began her career working as an engineer in the pharmaceutical industry. In addition to her role with the Diamond Family Foundation and now with the Humpty Dumpty Institute, Jennifer serves as a trustee on a number of boards, she is a US-UK Fulbright Commissioner and she is a partner in Cobble House LLC, a multimedia development company.
William J. Rouhana Jr., Chairman of the Humpty Dumpty Institute, said that “HDI’s mission will benefit greatly from Jennifer’s thoughtful approach to finding solutions to tough problems around the world. And her years of international experience will make us even more effective. We are very excited to have Jennifer join us in our work”. Ralph L.
