Change begins with curiosity about yourself, your organization and your stakeholders.
A game changer, Kathleen understands the dimensions and demands of transformation. She is deeply intuitive and instinctive with others, recognizing the challenges each individual will face. She speaks with grace and authority whether she is with one person or talking to a room of 100, clarifying, challenging and celebrating as need be.- Martha Johnson, Former Administrator, GSA (General Services Administration)
In an era of declining alumni participation and greater dispersion of philanthropy, colleges and universities need to redouble efforts to engage all members of the alumni body, particularly since many institutions have historically underserved women. Doing this successfully requires thoughtful and intentional design and execution, but it begins with training and re-training staff who may not know how to do this effectively. Kathleen Loehr is, quite simply, the expert in women’s philanthropy and she worked with me and our executive leadership team in advancement to design and execute a first-rate training for our entire team. Kathleen’s training model helped our advancement leadership first to learn and apply a highly effective whole-systems model and then for all of our advancement staff to commit to a well understood and agreed upon direction for women’s philanthropy at the university, together with a systemic, detailed plan of action to achieve this.- Matthew T. Lambert, Vice President for University Advancement, William & Mary
WOW!… The depth of your knowledge about women and philanthropy, your vision to move this work forward, and your passion for it create such positive energy…. It is an honor to work with you. I learn something new very time we interact.- Andrea Pactor, Interim Director, Women’s Philanthropy Institute, Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, Indiana University
Kathleen has a deep history and expertise in women’s philanthropy. She approaches the work holistically, working with both the women and institutions so as to tap into the growing resources that women have to offer. I’ve been pleased and proud to recommend her because she is thoughtfully building on the work that Sondra Shaw-Hardy and I started. In addition, Kathleen is addressing the integrated and practical behaviors and metric conversations needed today for successful and sustained women’s philanthropy across the country.- Martha A. Taylor, Vice President, University of Wisconsin Foundation
