  Cheryl Dorsey

An accomplished social entrepreneur with expertise in health care, labor issues and public policy, Cheryl Dorsey was named president of Echoing Green in May 2002. She is the first Echoing Green Fellow to lead this global nonprofit, which has awarded more than $28 million in start-up capital to over 450 social entrepreneurs worldwide since 1987.

Dorsey received her education at Harvard-Radcliffe Colleges where she earned a degree in history and science in 1985. In 1992, while training to be a pediatrician at Harvard Medical School, she received an Echoing Green Fellowship. With it, she launched the Family Van, a community-based mobile health unit that provides basic health care and outreach services to at-risk residents of inner-city Boston neighborhoods.

As a public policy innovator, Dorsey served as a White House Fellow from 1997 to 1998 as special assistant to the secretary of labor, advising the Clinton administration on health care and other issues. She was later named special assistant to the director of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Women’s Bureau, where she helped develop family-friendly workplace policies and spearheaded the labor secretary’s pay equity initiative. Most recently, she was appointed vice-chair of the president’s Commission on White House Fellowships.

Dorsey was named one of “America’s Best Leaders” in 2009 by US News & World Report and the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard Kennedy School. She has received numerous other awards and honors for her commitment to public service, including the Robert Kennedy Distinguished Public Service Award. . . . short bio
