Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Business

The Board of Directors is delighted to bring Linda back to the organization in this key role. Linda has extensive experience working in the Latino community and is deeply committed to Mujeres’ mission. We are very excited to enter this next phase of leadership for the organization with such a talented and passionate nonprofit professional. Linda is a highly regarded development and marketing expert, having served most recently as the Director of Development at the Association House of Chicago. In her capacity at the Association House, she was responsible of managing the daily operations for all fundraising and marketing activities. She built strategic relationships with stakeholders and created and executed the annual development plan in order to support the organization’s mission. Before this role, Linda served as the Special Projects Director at the National Museum of Mexican Art and as the Development Manager at Mujeres.

In addition to over a decade of fundraising experience, Linda brings a legal and policy background to her new role. In 2012, Linda was a Proteus Fund Diversity Fellow at the Nellie Mae Education Foundation—a one-year fellowship designed to provide individuals of color with a comprehensive understanding of the philanthropic sector. Currently, Linda serves as the 2017 Chair of Fundraising Committee of Healing to Action which advances a worker-led movement to end gender violence in the workplace. Under Linda’s leadership, Mujeres will continue to advocate for, and address the immediate needs facing Latinas and their families. Serving alongside the incredible staff at Mujeres, she hopes to contribute to the future successes and collective efforts to shine a light on critical issues that face Latina women and their families in the Chicagoland area. Linda has a Bachelor of Arts from Brown University in Political Science and History of Modern Latin America and a Juris Doctor from Northwestern Pritzker School of Law.
