Anne Friedman

Anne is a speechwriter and communications consultant who is currently pursuing a Master’s in Public Policy at Northwestern University. Prior to going to graduate school, Anne split her time between the San Francisco Bay Area and Washington, DC. A double major in Political Science and Sociology from Stanford University led Anne to work in grassroots political consulting for a few years before turning to communications full-time. She enjoys balancing her work life with absurd art projects, like recreating a She-Ra Princess of Power costume for Halloween, or making a skirt out of feathers. Philanthropy–strategic, engaged, effective philanthropy–is an academic and personal passion of hers. The Women Donors Network makes her a better philanthropist and she was honored to serve on the Board.
