WAIS Welcomes Kristin Pauly (US) (John Eipper, USA, 07/03/21 4:23 am)

The perfect way to celebrate the Fourth of July weekend is by meeting a new WAISer!  Kristin Pauly of Annapolis, Maryland, comes to WAIS thanks to a nomination from John Hesley.  She brings to the Forum her extensive experience with Foundations, NGOs and development, both in the US and internationally.

Kristin's bio:

Kristin A. Pauly retired in 2015 after 17 years as managing director of Prince Charitable Trusts, in Washington, DC. The Trusts operate as a family foundation with grant programs in Chicago, Washington, DC and Rhode Island. From 1990 to 1997 she was manager of urban and metropolitan programs for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation based in Annapolis, Maryland. In that capacity she wrote several publications advocating more sustainable growth in the Washington, DC metropolitan region.

Previously, Pauly was assistant program officer with the Carnegie Corporation of New York with the Commonwealth Program from 1976 - 1980. There she developed grant programs to support women's economic development in Jamaica, Kenya, and Nigeria. In 1980 she organized the Exchange--an open forum at the Women's Mid-Decade Conference in Copenhagen Denmark and was publisher of The Exchange Report, documenting cross-cultural conversations on topics of Women's Bureaus, organizing self-employed women, female circumcision and health, and education for women and girls. She was also founder of the SEEDS publication series that documented successful women's economic enterprises throughout the world.

Ms. Pauly was an assistant program officer with the Ford Foundation in the Office of Public Broadcasting and Communications (1969 - 1976). She also spent 6 months on loan to the Office of the Middle East based in Lebanon as a liaison between Children's Television Workshop and the Arab States Broadcast Union in developing an Arabic-language Sesame Street launched throughout the Arabic-speaking world in 1979.

In 1966 - 1967 Pauly worked in the Press Office of First Lady Ladybird Johnson in the White House. In 1967 she lived in Tehran, Iran, with her husband, Dion Anderson, who was director of the Iran-America Society and who served with the US Information Agency. She left Iran in 1969.

Pauly was a founding member of the board of the Funders Network on Smart Growth and Livable Communities and of the Chesapeake Bay Funders Network where she served as co-chair. She was also a founding member and Co-Chair of the Washington Regional Food Funders. She is a graduate of American University and a resident of Annapolis, Maryland.

JE comments:  Kristin, prepare yourself for my questions on the Johnson White House, pre-Revolutionary Iran, and (especially) your pioneering advocacy for sustainable development and women's empowerment, which defined your work long before these were mainstream concepts.  I promise not to overwhelm you with my curiosity all at once...don't want to scare away a new WAISer.

And welcome to WAIS.  This calls for parades and fireworks!
