Barbara Dobkin

From Jamie Allen Black

Barbara Dobkin is an extraordinary woman who leads by example and has changed the lives of scores of women (and even a few men).

You inspire me because

You are a true she-ro. You inspire me because you are brilliant, funny, committed to gender and social justice, loving, kind, and irreverent.

Something I have learned from you is

To be thoughtful about philanthropy. You’ve also taught me to push myself to be a better leader; to go to conferences but not attend any programs; and that beautiful friendships can be created even later in life.

Thank you for

Thank you for your support, guidance, food, and laughter. I love you for all that you are in the world and all that you are in my world.

Additional Thoughts
