Tech executive Jennifer Dulski ’93, MBA ’99, president and COO of Change.org, will speak about managing a career and making a difference Sept. 19 at 5 p.m. in Lewis Auditorium, Goldwin Smith Hall.

Dulski will focus on work that makes an impact, maximizing your chances for successful leadership and the importance of embracing change. She has a history of working for social change, including early experience in education and nonprofits, and her first job after college founding and running a nonprofit organization that helps underserved middle school students get on a path to college.

One of the first 500 employees at Yahoo!, Dulski rose over nine years to group vice president and general manager of one of the company’s business units. She left Yahoo! in 2007 to become co-founder and CEO of The Dealmap, a mobile, location-based site acquired by Google in 2011, making Dulski the first woman to sell a company to Google. She stayed at Google for nearly two years as a senior executive before going to Change.org.

A psychology major at Cornell, Dulski was a coxswain on the women’s rowing team and served as a Cayuga Heights volunteer firefighter. While earning her MBA, she was a Park Fellow at the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management. She currently is a member of the Cornell Silicon Valley Advisory Council and the President’s Council of Cornell Women.

Dulski is the Munschauer Career Series speaker. The series was endowed by former Cornell University Career Center director John Munschauer to bring graduates of the College of Arts and Sciences to campus to benefit current students’ career education.

The talk is free and open to the public.
