About our Keynote Speaker:


For nearly a decade, Joan Garry served as the Executive Director of GLAAD, one of the largest gay rights organizations in the country, where she launched several successful media campaigns, including GLAAD’s successful campaign to lobby the New York Times to include same sex wedding announcements in its Style section. She later acted as the co-chair of Barack Obama’s LGBT Finance Committee during his 2008 presidential campaign.
Joan now works with nonprofit leaders, assisting with crisis management, executive coaching and the building of strong management teams to support the work of the CEO. She also teaches nonprofit media strategy as a professor at 
the Annenberg School for Communications at the University of Pennsylvania, and is a blogger for The Huffington Post.
Joan’s nonprofit work began after 14 years in executive positions in corporate entertainment, including her role as a member of the management team that launched MTV in 1981.
