Jennifer Madar is vice chair of the YAA Board of Governors. She is also immediate past chair of YaleWomen and a past president of YaleBoston. For many years she was a member of the Boston-area Alumni Schools Committee. Her goal throughout her years of service to the University has been to foster a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere for all alums — undergraduate, graduate and professional alike.
Madar has primarily worked in communications since she graduated from Yale with a B.A. in History in 1988. She has held management positions at several Boston and New York advertising agencies and director positions at several Boston nonprofits, in addition to consulting on a wide range of projects over the years.
Madar's communications background has given her an openness to different perspectives, as well as a strong commitment to consensus-building and outreach.
