Jennifer Weidman

Name: Jennifer Weidman

Alumni Year: 2018

Favorite Memory of BBF: One of the greatest parts of my experience was being paired with a fellow from another graduate program! Megha and I brought different skill sets from the MDP and Haas programs to address strategic challenges working with Goodwill of San Francisco, San Mateo, and Marin. We had a ton of fun and I also made a great friend!

Where are they now: I am completing a final project and graduating from the Master of Development Practice Program this May (2018) and afterwards hope to work in program effectiveness with community-driven development organizations in East Africa.

Favorite Memory of BBF: I really enjoyed attending board meetings. It gave me a great opportunity to experience how board members think about and how they deal with strategic issues such as fundraising, financial oversight, and risk management.

Where are they now: I currently work in product marketing for VMware in Palo Alto. I am actively looking for opportunities to serve on a non-profit board after I graduate from Haas this Spring.
