Susan McPherson – A Connector for Women

March 7, 2022

“For the vast majority of my professional life, my focus has been to ignite positive social change through strategic communications, advocacy and partnership creation between the private and nonprofit sectors. Growing up, I was taught kindness, curiosity and compassion from the earliest days of my upbringing. Now as a grown Jewish woman, a day does not go by that I don’t incorporate those values that were embedded in me by my parents.”    – Susan McPherson

McPherson champions women’s issues because “The benefits of gender diversity and equity are well researched in all walks of life: Society is better, business is better, government is better and families are better.”

She serves on the board of The19th and has funded  21 women-led startups as an angel investor. Among her clients are and the Women’s Philanthropy Institute.

Susan McPherson joined Reboot Ideas for a conversation with Dot Dot Dot Founder Laurie Segall about her book The Lost Art of Connecting: The Gather, Ask, Do Method for Building Meaningful Relationships.
