Fighting for Women's Equality

Autumn McDonald Joins ERA’s Board of Directors

March 6, 2017 | by

We are excited to announce that Autumn McDonald has joined ERA’s Board of Directors.

Autumn brings nearly two decades of experience working with foundations, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and associations on strategy, program design, evaluation, and advocacy. She has served, most recently, as a Senior Advisor for Women’s Policy to San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee through the FUSE Corps Executive Fellowship. She lives in the Bay Area with her husband and two children. Read more about Autumn’s experience and accomplishments here.

“It is encouraging to reflect on the progress made in women’s rights, but as with all issues of equality injustice has not sun setted – sexism, racism, xenophobia, are not just in our past.  Human rights won’t come quietly while so many still act on implicit and often very explicit biases. That’s why I’m thrilled to join Equal Rights Advocates in fighting for gender equity, for my daughter, for my son, and for every child. For the world we live in (the urgency of now) and for the world children will inherit (a hope filled future),” said Autumn.

“ERA is thrilled to have Autumn join the board. She brings an impressive background in organizational strategic thinking, which is especially critical for ERA at a time when our services are increasingly needed by the vulnerable communities that we serve,” said ERA Executive Director Noreen Farrell. 

Please join us in welcoming Autumn!
