LCU Fund Announces New Board President.

At the 159th Annual Meeting of the Board of Directors of the LCU Fund for Women's Education, the Board elected Leslie Ehrlich as President.

Following a distinguished career in the corporate world inventing products that make the financial lives of consumers simpler, easier and better, Leslie Ehrlich has devoted herself to education. She is the co-founder of Think Tank for Schools, a non-profit whose curriculum enhances college readiness by teaching high school students to think and work independently. Leslie also works to promote financial literacy. She is a founding co-chair of the financial literacy program of Dress for Success; and teaches financial literacy for that organization and others. Leslie began her career at The Boston Consulting Group and went on to lead marketing and product development organizations for Citigroup, Instinet, JPMorgan Chase, GE and Mastercard. An early advocate for the internet’s potential to transform our lives, her best-known and most widely used product is the redesigned chase.com online banking website. In addition to the LCU Fund for Women’s Education, Leslie also serves on the Advisory Board of the Association to Benefit Children, on the Alumnae Board of The Chapin School, and is the Treasurer Double Entendre Music Ensemble. Leslie holds an AB degree from Princeton University and an MBA from Stanford University. She lives in New York City with her family. Since joining the LCU Board in 2013, Leslie has been instrumental in efforts to reframe the Fund's investment approach, affirm our grantmaking priorities and strategy and extend our circle of supporters. 

At that same meeting, Margaret Dietsche was elected to her first full term as Board Secretary and Carol Starmack was appointed as Interim Vice President.
