Two New Associates add Social Entrepreneurship and international perspectives to A&O

Feb 23 2016

Corinne Ribble, MPA and Ann Sutherland, MS each bring to A&O over two decades of experience in non-profit leadership including strategic planning, evaluation, and capacity building.

Corinne has extensive experience building management and evaluation infrastructures that support program delivery and fund development with clients including the Alaska Wilderness League, City of Syracuse, The Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties and Syracuse University. As director of philanthropy at the Community Foundation, Corinne founded and facilitated the growth of a community-wide, collective impact literacy coalition. “Catalytic philanthropy combines funding with the expertise to achieve results – it’s a hands-on process that benefits both the recipient and the donor.” Corinne holds a Bachelors of Arts degree from Colgate University and a Master’s of Public Administration from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University.

Ann Sutherland has an extensive background in social research and is a skilled facilitator and trainer providing evaluation services for international development organizations. Ann’s work has included meta-evaluations and organizational reviews for United Nations agencies, training in results-based management and evaluation, and evaluations of sustainable agriculture, enterprise development, peace-building, and gender-focused programs. “Working globally confirmed for me that all organizations share the challenges of securing leadership and providing accountability.” Locally, Ann has worked with community organizations and Syracuse University to facilitate strategic planning processes, secure funding, and collaboratively assess and improve performance. Ann has a Master of Environmental Studies from York University and a Certificate of Advanced Studies from Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
