DRi Announces Leadership Conference VP Development

DRiWaterstone is delighted to announce the completion of our search for a Vice President of Development at the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights/The Education Fund, one of the foremost progressive advocacy organizations in the country.

DRiWaterstone worked with The Leadership Conference/The Education Fund as new CEO Vanita Gupta—a long-time civil rights advocate with leadership experience in the Obama Justice Dept.’s Civil Rights Division, the ACLU, and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund—took the helm of the organization. We designed a search for a fundraising executive who could be a trusted partner to The Leadership Conference’s top-notch leadership team and who could markedly increase support for its efforts to defend against immediate challenges to democracy, justice, and opportunity and lay the groundwork for affirmative civil rights goals in the future.

Gabrielle Sherb recently joined the Leadership Conference/The Education Fund as its new VP of Development. Gabrielle brings a significant record in executive leadership, fundraising, and progressive advocacy to The Leadership Conference/The Education Fund. She spent the last six years at the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), where she worked closely with the organization’s prominent leaders. Gabrielle started out by running the New York office of the ADL and then moved to D.C. to direct a fundraising team that consistently beat its $3M development goal for the region.

We congratulate Gabrielle and The Leadership Conference/The Education Fund. We look forward to their success together.
