Regina Bain serves as associate vice president of the Posse Foundation, headquartered in New York, which seeks to expand the pool of outstanding students from diverse backgrounds from which top colleges and universities can recruit, working through programs both in high schools and on campuses. She also serves on the national advisory board of Urban Bush Women, a nonprofit dance company that galvanizes artists, activists and audiences through performances, artist development and community involvement.
Bain has been a panelist and blogger for Careers, Life and Yale; a YAA At-Large Delegate (2010–2013); a panelist for the inaugural 1stGenYale conference, in 2017; a facilitator for Shades Alumni Family, the alumni organization of the undergraduate singing group Shades; and currently as a YAA Delegate for the Yale Black Alumni Association (2018–2021). She has also participated in events with YaleWomen, Yale in Hollywood, the Yale Alumni Nonprofit Association (YANA), and Yale-sponsored diversity, equity and inclusion activities. This is his first year on the YAA Board of Governors.
In addition, Bain is involved in two current start-up initiatives: Yale Wishes, a one-to-one personal welcome gift from Yale alumni to incoming first-generation Yale students, through which the alumni share what they wish they had known back when they started at Yale; and an exploratory committee pursuing the possibility of a formal alumni association for the Yale School of Drama.
