PASE is thrilled to welcome Cecilia Clarke, President and CEO of the Brooklyn Community Foundation, as our keynote speaker for the 2015 PASE@PACE Conference.

For more than 20 years, Ceclia has successfully managed and developed nonprofit organizations in the greater New York City area, with an emphasis on community and cultural advancement. Under Cecilia, the Foundation has launched “Invest in Youth,” a 10-year strategic leadership and grantmaking initiative focused on improving opportunities and outcomes for young Brooklynites ages 16-24. She joined the Foundation, the first and only philanthropic institution solely dedicated to New York City’s largest borough, in September 2013 after more than a decade as Executive Director of the Sadie Nash Leadership Project. Sadie Nash is an innovative educational leadership program Ms. Clarke founded in 2001 for low-income young women.
