Mazzoni Center Board of Directors Names CEO

After a five-month national search, Mazzoni Center’s Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of  Lydia Gonzalez Sciarrino as Chief Executive Officer.  Lydia Gonzalez Sciarrino will succeed Stephen A. Glassman, interim CEO.
“We were very impressed with her energy and vision and the breadth of her experience,” said Board President Christopher Pope, “ Lydia's proven track record and leadership skills, combined with her dedication to creating a culturally competent and ethnically diverse workforce representing the community it serves, confirmed that we made the right choice.”
Pope continued, “The CEO search committee was large to ensure we had many voices representing a broad range of experience, expertise, and tenure to ensure the selection process was inclusive and representative of the diversity of our organization. I truly believe this approach allowed us to identify the right pool of candidates and to select the best candidate to maintain the integrity of Mazzoni Center’s mission while leading the organization into the future.”
When asked what attracted her to this opportunity, Gonzalez Sciarrino said, “The ability to continue working with and serving the people that are important to me. The advances made in the areas of race and gender equality are under fire and the LGBTQ community continues to face insurmountable challenges in every aspect of life. Mazzoni Center is sitting on the cusp of a new movement and I want to be a part of it.”
