NYU Reynolds Program in Social Entrepreneurship
Ronni Baerkahn is the Program Manager at NYU Reynolds. Prior to joining NYU, Ronni spent four years working at Northeastern University's College of Business Administration in Boston, MA, where she was the Client Relationship Manager in the Corporate Programs Office. In this capacity, Ronni managed customized executive education programs, graduate certificate programs, and a ten-week entrepreneurship program for women recently released from incarceration. This program, developed by Northeasternís College of Business Administration and Institute on Urban Health Research in partnership with the Boston Public Health Commission, helps previously incarcerated women regain confidence and develop positive mindsets through a series of interactive working sessions, computer training classes, team-building exercises and one-on-one mentoring with the ultimate goal of starting their own businesses.
Before moving to Boston in 2007, Ronni held an account executive role at a NYC boutique branding agency and ad sales positions at two television networks.
Ronni has volunteered extensively in her time outside of work. Most recently she assisted in the planning of the fifth annual Friends of ACCRF (Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma Research Foundation) fundraiser event. She also volunteered with Citizen Schools where she teamed with a group of undergraduate students from Northeastern University to lead a ten-week apprenticeship about social entrepreneurship to middle school students in Dorchester, MA.
Ronni received her B.S. in Marketing from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA.
