Social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion…while for Rosalind they began with the Jewish values of tikkun olam (repairing the world) and tzedek (seeking justice), they have moved beyond her practice into all aspects of her personal and professional life. She incorporated these values into the recruiting, hiring, and retention processes she developed to provide access to jobs in financial services for underrepresented groups. They fold into her inclusive leadership style, which gives voice and opportunity to all members of her teams. It is deeply founded social justice while she pursues a Ph.D. from Antioch University focusing on how leadership style can develop, support, and sustain a diverse employee population.  

While Rosalind’s experience in HR spans several industries, her most significant contributions and expertise lie in financial services. She is currently at Global Asset Capital as Head of Talent and Workplace Connectivity, responsible for the global talent initiative as well as the operational and cultural connectivity of the organization. Previously she was a Principal at Hall Capital Partners LLC as Director of Human Capital, at Nollenberger Capital Partners as Director of Human Resources, and at Banc of America Securities as Vice President/Business Support in the Equity Research department. She worked as the Managing Director of Human Resources at Business for Social Responsibility, as well as having created the human resources function at the Walt Disney Family Museum.

Rosalind serves on the Board of the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco (JCCSF), and in an advisory capacity for Pluto, a workforce analytics, communications, and diversity & inclusion platform. She holds a B.A. in Psychology and an M.A. in Public and Educational Management from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. She has been awarded both the Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) by the Human Resources Certification Institute (HRCI) and the Senior Certified Professional in HR (SHRM-SCP) from the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM).
