Jill joined the PJCC in February of 2017 for a one-year term working with the CEO on issues of strategy, culture, practice and performance. By the end of her term in mid-February 2018, her goal is to have strengthened the Center’s capacity for learning and innovation and to have encouraged a culture of conscious curiosity. Jill has a long history with the PJCC, having co-conducted with her partner, Fay Twersky, the feasibility study that established the value and need for the Foster City Campus. In 2007, Jill and Fay sold their firm, Informing Change, a Berkeley-based research and evaluation firm, and Jill has since been an independent consultant to nonprofits and philanthropy with a focus on leadership, culture and team development.
Jill is passionate about helping organizations and their leaders build a healthy, joyful, creative, values-based culture with a commitment to using information and experience to achieve meaningful results. Jill serves on the board of directors of the Gideon Hausner Jewish Day School in Palo Alto, CA; a member of the Strategy Committee of the Seattle CityClub; and provides pro bono consulting to the Palo Alto Players – a community theater company. She also serves proudly as a mentor for the “Scoop” Jackson Leadership Fellows program, a leadership development program which she helped design. In addition to her passion for improving practice, performance and leadership in the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors, Jill and her lifetime partner and wife, Fay Twersky, share their very full lives with their two amazing children, David-Nathan and Jaz.All Leadership & Learning Team
