Lee Swislow has served as GLAD's Executive Director since 2005. Since coming to GLAD, Lee has worked to deepen the organization's work throughout New England by building strong coalitions with state equality organizations to achieve shared goals. She is also strengthening GLAD's presence and impact on national work and strategy.
Lee has a long history of non-profit management, primarily in hospitals and healthcare. Before joining GLAD, she held a five-year position as Vice President of Health Services and the Executive Director for the Sidney Borum, Jr. Health Center under the umbrella of The Justice Resource Institute. While at JRI she oversaw a broad array of services to underserved populations, with a focus on adolescents and young adults, and special services for members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities.
Prior to JRI, Lee served as the chief operating officer and chief nursing officer at the Cambridge Health Alliance where she was responsible for clinical operations and support services, and oversaw a successful merger with Somerville Hospital in 1996.
As a registered nurse, she served on the frontlines during the early years of the AIDS crisis. "AIDS has always affected a diverse population and it has a devastating impact," says Lee, who was the head nurse of Boston City Hospital's AIDS Clinics (1985-1989). "It's a significant piece of my life's work. I am seeing ways that society and the community are trying to distance themselves from AIDS - distance themselves from the pain and pretend that it is no longer a threat. But, we need to be constantly vigilant."
Lee has an undergraduate degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a Master's degree from Northeastern University, as well as a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
