Coffee and a Cause: United Way of Central Ohio

June 21, 2018 7:30 am @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am

“Coffee and a Cause” is a brand-new leadership event series for young professionals hosted by CYP Club Cares focused on community impact education. Each month we interview a local non-profit executive director or leader to talk with us about their story and their organization. It is hosted on the third Thursday of every month with a different community theme each month.

For our June event, we’re excited to welcome Lisa Courtice, President and CEO of United Way of Central Ohio, one of the largest United Way organizations in the country. Under Lisa’s her leadership, United Way is helping to mobilize the central Ohio community to reduce poverty.

Dr. Courtice is a Ph.D. psychologist with over twenty-five years of experience working in nonprofit leadership having served for over ten years as the CEO, Co-CEO and clinical director of agencies directly providing services to those living in poverty in Ohio. For the last thirteen years she has served as executive vice president and leader of community research and grants management of The Columbus Foundation, the seventh largest community foundation in the country.

She currently serves on the Prevent Family Homeless Collaborative. Her professional activities have included the Home and Health impact councils of United Way of Central Ohio, Weinland Park Collaborative, Psychiatric Crisis & Emergency System Task Force of Central Ohio, Champion of Children Advisory Committee, and the Ohio Wesleyan University and Columbus School for Girls Board of Trustees. Lisa received her Bachelor of Arts from Syracuse University, her Master of Arts from West Virginia University, and her Ph.D. from the University of Akron.
