Deborah Macfarlan Enright, Ed.D.
President & CEO
Deb loves anyone who seeks to improve the world through skillful disruption of the status quo.
She is an acclaimed communicator, strategist, catalyst, and coach adept at uncovering potential in individuals and groups strengthening their abilities to optimize their impact within their organization and the community.
Her work experiences here and abroad have found her in the company of disrupters changing the worlds of workforce development for formerly incarcerated individuals, immigrants and refugees, children's literacy, youth leadership development, children with special needs, school administrative leadership, teacher development, and human trafficking.
Deb is a connector par excellence who believes that disrupters talking across industries and interests to collectively impact social challenges will cause deep sustainable change.
In addition to service on local social impact organization boards, Deb also serves as the Vice President of Strategic Planning on the Board of the Alumnae and Alumni of Vassar College. (Her beloved undergraduate alma mater.)
Deb Macfarlan Enright holds an undergraduate degree from Vassar College and two advanced degrees from Vanderbilt University including a Doctorate in Education Policy from the nationally ranked Leadership, Policy & Organization Department program.
Before all of this (and children), Deb fronted a jazz trio touring the East Coast and Caribbean. Her tune, “Tonight He’s Mine” recorded by the James Bazen Big Band can be found on YouTube here.
