The Women's Center announced Monday the appointment of Angela Mancuso as the new Executive Director. Board President Sharon Wood, who has guided the organization through the search process, said that Mancuso is uniquely positioned to focus on community outreach and partnerships designed to build upon the Center's existing programming and future needs.
Mancuso has 12 years of professional experience serving the domestic violence environment. In her previous roles, she served as Executive Director of the Sojourner Truth House and Co-Executive Director for the Sojourner Family Peace Center. She is the past co-chair of the City of Milwaukee's Commission on Domestic Violence and is currently a Commissioner.
She was given a Mayoral Proclamation on Sept. 12 as "Angela Mancuso Day" for outstanding service to victims of domestic violence. Mancuso was also awarded "Women of Influence" in 2012 from the Milwaukee Business Journal.
Mancuso holds a business administration degree from Mount Mary University and has taken continuing education coursework through the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Extension Leadership Program, Indiana University Center on Philanthropy, the Helen Bader Institute, and the Management Resource Association.
She is currently a member of the Mount Mary College Justice Department Advisory Board and participated in the Mosaic Partnerships Class of 2009.
Mancuso will join The Women's Center in November of this year.
"We are very happy to have Angela on our team. Her background and knowledge in the community and her domestic violence experience is a perfect fit to lead efforts as we continue to grow," said Al Froehlich, incoming Board President. "We will leverage Angela's experience to help shape the future direction of the Center."
