Elizabeth Maw


My mission is to help people build the skills, knowledge, and connections they need to drive positive change. It is my sincere honor to lead the world’s best graduate program for mission-driven students to hone their ability to make a difference.

My early career was spent honing my change-making skills as a consultant and fundraiser with mission-driven organizations. During this time, I had the pleasure of working with top social sector organizations, including the International Rescue Committee, Trust for Public Land, and VolunteerMarch. In 2004, I joined Net Impact as their CEO and led them on a journey for over 14 years where we grew from 80 chapters to more than 300 globally, while creating dynamic new programs in racial equity, impact investing, food systems, climate, and more.

I have a BA in English from Yale University and an MBA from Columbia Business School with a semester spent on exchange at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business when I was trying out the west coast. I’ve served on several nonprofit boards, most recently as Development Committee Chair for my son’s school. My short-term personal goal is to travel to all 50 states (I’m at 47 now), with a longer-term stretch goal to go to every country.
