Susan Donnellan

Susan joined the team at Brigham & Women’s Hospital’s Division of Global Health Equity as the Membership and Engagement Project Coordinator for the Center for Integration Science in January 2022.

A trip to Ethiopia to adopt her son and a strong desire to contribute to global human equity brought her to a career change from Early Childhood Education to the nonprofit world focused on human dignity, equity, and sustainable humanitarian aid.

She earned a Graduate Certificate focused on Sustainable Aid Delivery at UMass Boston’s Center For Rebuilding Sustainable Communities after Disaster (CRSCAD), soon after which, she began working for Wide Horizons For Children – an agency providing humanitarian aid to children and families in 10 countries. Over the course of her six years there, she contributed to aid program administration, fundraising and development, major event planning and marketing and engagement.
