Developing the social enterprise leaders of tomorrow.
As the Director of Leadership Programs, Christina Gilyutin oversees two programs at REDF—the REDF Accelerator and the Farber Program. Launched in 2016, the REDF Accelerator is the only program of its kind designed to develop leaders and build the capacity in social enterprises around the country. The Farber Program is a highly competitive leadership initiative for graduate students (primarily MBAs) with a passion for social change. The Program places graduate students in social enterprise businesses that provide hands-on experience, the opportunity to make a real impact, and build essential skills and networks critical to the growth of social enterprise. Christina is always looking for ways to engage with, and activate the powerful network of over 150 Farber Alumni. Christina has a BA in International Relations from Stanford University and a dual MBA/MS in Natural Resources & Environment from the University of Michigan’s Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise. She’s an avid cyclist, snowboarder, and recycler who also enjoys stand-up comedy and acrobatics.
