NYU Wagner alumnus RuthAnne Visnauskas Appointed as HPD Commissioner for NYC

NYU Wagner alumna RuthAnne Visnauskas has been appointed to serve as the next Commissioner of the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD).

Ms. Visnauskas has been serving as the deputy commissioner for development at the agency. She will replace the current Commissioner, Mathew M. Wambua, who is departing to take the position of President of RHR Funding LLC, part of The Richman Group of Companies’ mortgage lending business.

Commented Ms. Visnauskas, “I am grateful to the Mayor for putting his trust in me, and I am thrilled to take on this challenge.  In the nearly eight years since I came to HPD, we have experienced a national hosing book, weathered a recession, and are moving into a recovery. Through it all our commissioners and staff positioned the agency to exceed expectations and to better serve those most in need.”

Ms. Vinauskas received a Masters in Urban Planning from Wagner. Prior to joining HPD, she was the Diretor of Housing for Clinton Housing Development Companies. To read more about her appointment, click here.

Inaugural IGNITE Institute Convenes Women of Color in Social Sector

Inaugural IGNITE Institute Convenes Women of Color in Social Sector

All 31 members of the inaugural class of the IGNITE Fellowship for Women of Color in the Social Sector ­– a leadership program for women of color at nonprofits, newly launched by NYU Wagner’s Research Center for Leadership  in Action (RCLA) -- gathered in New York City for a kick-off institute that stretched from August 1-6.

The IGNITE institute, organized by Toni Harris, Director of Career Services and Alumni Relations at Wagner, and Director of the IGNITE Fellowship, began with a welcome reception in the NYU President’s Penthouse in Washington Square. The evening included a lively and bracing discussion with Irshad Manji, director of the Moral Courage Project at NYU Wagner. Manji is the author of the international bestseller The Trouble with Islam Today: A Muslim’s Call for Reform in Her Faith, creator of the Emmy-nominated PBS documentary, Faith Without Fear, and she most recently authored Allah, Liberty & Love. Speaking to the IGNITE fellows, she shared  hard-won lessons on creating work-life balance for herself and her team –  a process she said was anchored in daily meditation, and propelled by the vitality and fulfillment that comes from working to turn a  vision into a reality.

The following day’s events took place at NYU Wagner and included an overview of findings from a decade of research on social change leadership delivered by RCLA Faculty Director Sonia Ospina, as well as a luncheon with a panel of women leading organizations across sectors in New York City.

 Speakers  included:

         - Analisa Leonor Balares, founder and CEO of Womensphere

         - Ana Oliveira, President and CEO of The New York Women’s Foundation  

          - Arva Rice, President and CEO of the New York Urban League

          - Fatima A. Shama, Commissioner of the New York City Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs

 NYU Wagner Assistant Dean of Fiscal Operations and Human Resources Trena Drayton, moderated the panel discussion.  The conversation traced the women’s leadership journeys, from when they first considered themselves leaders, to key moments that have influenced their leadership styles and directions, to leadership challenges they are each facing currently. Key themes included the important role leaders play in convening stakeholders to find solutions, recognizing moments of opportunity in moments of crisis, and the assets that leaders of color, in particular, gain from navigating cultures while remaining grounded in the affirmation of “home” relationships and communities.

 “The energy in the room crystallized the continued value of conversations like these,” said Drayton. “People of color, especially women, benefit greatly from candid, informed dialogue around matters that are often left unspoken.”

 Following the events at Wagner, the Fellows travelled to Old Greenwich, Connecticut, for four days of robust leadership and management sessions and a chance to build a strong network. In the coming nine months, the Fellows will continue to sharpen their leadership skills with the support of cohort members and Fellowship managers.

 Offered with support from the American Express Foundation, IGNITE is a nine-month program that offers a diverse group of mid-career women directing nonprofit programs and organizations across the United States exposure to best practices, processes for building personal and organizational leadership, and opportunities to build and strengthen core management capacities.

 The program is sponsored by RCLA’s People of Color Leadership Network, which strengthens communities of color by supporting leadership by and for people of color.

How Microfinance Really Works

How Microfinance Really Works
The Milken Institute Review

Morduch, Jonathan
01/01/2013

About half of the world’s adults lack bank accounts. Most of these “unbanked” are deemed too expensive to serve, or not worth the hassle created by banking regulations. But what may be good business from a banker’s perspective isn’t necessarily what’s best for society. The inequalities that persist in financial access reinforce broader inequalities in the distribution of income and wealth. This is the opening for microfinance and also its challenge. Microlending has been sold as a practical means to get capital into the hands of small-scale entrepreneurs who can then earn their way out of poverty. The idea appeals to our impulse to help people help themselves and to our conviction that bottom-up development depends on the embrace of the market. By eschewing governments and traditional charities, the sector promises to sidestep the bureaucracy and inertia that have hobbled other attempts to expand the opportunities of the poor.

Opportunism: Transforming the World Economy, One Idea at a Time

Presented by NYU Wagner and Farrar Straus & Giroux

Please join us for a dialogue with Shraga Biran, author of Opportunism: How to Change the World One Idea at a Time and Eduardo Porter, author of The Price of Everything: Solving the Mystery of Why We Pay What We Do.

“In today’s world, opportunity can no longer be viewed as a chance occurrence or as a starting point for competition in society. Rather, it is the raw material for a new era of abundance.”  More than natural resources, an impressive portfolio, or prime real estate, innovation, entrepreneurship and opportunity are today’s currency; physical assets are trumped by social and intellectual capital.  In the groundbreaking new book Opportunism: How to Change the World One Idea at a Time, Shraga Biran (founder of one of Israel’s leading law firms and a lifelong champion of civil rights and social justice) makes clear that the challenge now to government and society is to protect the creators of this new kind of wealth and to extend to all individuals the rights and stability necessary to own whatever opportunities they create as their private property.  At this event, Biran and Porter will discuss and explore the ideas in thier books, as well as what leaders in public service can do to extend and protect opportunty for all global citizens.

A continental breakfast will be served.

Creative State: Book Announcement and Celebration

At the turn of the 21st century, governments around the world began searching for ways to capitalize on emigration for economic growth, and they looked to nations that already had policies in place. Morocco and Mexico featured prominently as sources of “best practices” in this area.

In Creative State, Assistant Professor of Public Policy Natasha Iskander chronicles how these innovative policies emerged and evolved over 40 years and reveals how neither the governments nor their migrant constituencies ever predicted the ways the initiatives would fundamentally redefine nationhood, development and citizenship.

Morocco’s and Mexico’s experiences with migration and development policy demonstrate that the state can be a remarkable site of creativity, an essential but often overlooked component of good governance.

Featuring:

Ellen Schall, Dean and Martin Cherkasky Professor of Health Policy & Management, NYU Wagner

Craig Calhoun, President of the Social Science Research Council, Director of the Institute for Public Knowledge at NYU, and Professor of Sociology at NYU

Jorge Castañeda, Global Distinguished Professor of Politics and Latin American and Caribbean Studies at NYU and former Foreign Minister of Mexico.

2010 Census: Snapshot of America?

Lower income and mobile populations, including individuals involved with the criminal justice system, are frequently undercounted by the Census. This disparity magnifies the inequities already existing within communities, leading to underfunding of critical services and infrastructure as well as under-representat ion in government. On April 5, 2010, SCJR will host an event titled, 2010 Census: Snapshot of America?, which will engage the Wagner community and demographic experts in a discussion about how to make the 2010 Census more just and reflective of historically undercounted communities. We invite you to participate in the discussion and make an enduring difference in your community by getting involved and staying informed.

The panelists include:
Ryan Kim, Partnership Specialist, U.S. Census Bureau
Jeremy Saunders, Lead Organizer, NYC AIDS Housing Authority

Pathways to Opportunity: Overcoming Barriers to Human Mobility

A discussion of the United Nations Development Programme's 2009 Human Development Report

with Jeni Klugman, director of the Human Development Report Office

Human mobility and development is the new, definitive report on migration and development. It breaks new ground in applying a human development approach to the study of movement, covering both internal and international migration. It discusses who moves, where and why. It looks at the multiple impacts of migration for all who are affected by it—not just those who move, but also those who stay, and links these to policies. The report lays out a major policy agenda designed to promote the human development outcomes of migration, and is a must read for everyone interested in the topic—for the GFMD and beyond.

Jeni Klugman, the study's lead author, will highlight the key findings and outline its recommendations by governments, civil society and other actors.

When: 11/19/2009 12:30pm-1:45pm
