Suzanne Lee joined Equality Now in August 2013. She previously served as the Development Director of Community-Word Project and has worked in fundraising and communications for several nonprofit organizations including, Madison Square Boys & Girls Club, ENACT and Coro New York Leadership Center. Suzanne also served two years in the Peace Corps in Benin, West Africa, and has done pro bono work for 4Girls GLocal Leadership, which promotes girls’ leadership development locally to advance gender equity globally. Suzanne holds a B.A. in Political Science from Rutgers University, USA.
Suzanne’s inspiration to advocate for women’s and girls’ rights comes from what she wants the world to look like for her daughter. For Suzanne, laws are important in making sure that all girls and women are safe each and every day, and that there are no limits to what they can accomplish. Suzanne’s favorite quote is by Nelson Mandela: “What counts in life is not the mere fact that we lived. It is the difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”
When she is not writing grant proposals, you will find Suzanne hiking or reading.
