Becky Sniderman is the Co-Chair of Fenway’s Young Leaders Council, an initiative of Fenway Health to empower emerging LGBT leaders and allies to shape our community’s future.
Becky began working at Facing History and Ourselves in January 2013 as the Development Coordinator for the New England region and has served as Executive Assistant to the Office of the President since February 2015. In her role at Facing History, a non-profit that believes that education is the key to combating bigotry and nurturing democracy, Becky provides administrative support to the Executive Office. Prior to working at Facing History, Becky was an Executive Assistant at Family Equality Council, an organization that works to ensure equality for families with parents who are LGBT.
Becky graduated from Brandeis University in 2010 with a BA in Sociology and Philosophy and minors in Social Justice & Social Policy and Health: Science, Society, & Policy. For her senior thesis, Becky studied racial relations in Mississippi in the Civil-Rights Era through the lens of healthcare. Based on her historical knowledge of healthcare disparities, Becky was accepted into the prestigious Barbara Jordan Health Policy Scholar Program in the summer of 2010. She lived with 11 other recent graduates at Howard University and worked in Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes-Norton’s office learning about legislation that addresses healthcare inequity.
Becky is an active member of the Boston Queer community through her role with Fenway’s Young Leaders Council as well as singing with Voices Rising, Boston’s feminist women’s chorus. She is always excited to talk about the YLC and hopes to chat with you soon at an upcoming YLC social outing or educational event!
