Board of Directors

The National Board of Women's Studies Research Center and Scholars Program at Brandeis University, founded in 1992, was created to provide guidance, financial support and assistance with community relations. 

Our Board consists of 16 members, including Brandeis alumni and non-alumni from various regions in the country. The group meets twice per year on the Brandeis campus and is led by Cochairs Cynthia Berenson and Rosalie Ripaldi Shane.  

Members of the board include businesswomen, philanthropists, people in the media, lawyers and writers, just to name a few.
