welcoming Nina Selvaggio to team family equality!

Thanks to our unprecedented growth, we’ve created a new position on
our staff; we’re thrilled to welcome Nina Selvaggio as our Director
of Policy & Program.

Nina is an advocate who has deep experience with community
organizing, professional development, operations management and
strategic leadership; over the past ten years, she has built
coalitions and worked with communities around issues of education
and social justice.

After earning a degree in Political Science and Women’s Studies
from the University of Illinois-Urbana, Nina began her career as a
Field Organizer for the Feminist Majority Foundation and has served
in a number of similar campaign and community organizing roles
since.  She ascended to the Executive Director position at
SpeakOut in Boston, a role that she held for over three years
before moving on to direct the Youth Violence Prevention Coalition
at GLSEN Boston.  She also worked in the Massachusetts State House
for State Treasurer Timothy Cahill and for the national
organization Citizen Schools.  Nina’s dedication to social
responsibility and activism extends into her personal time, as
well; she has served the National Organization for Women in several
roles, including the President and Political Action Committee Chair
of Massachusetts and on the National Board representing the
Northeast region.
