Director

Ms. Barrett was on the faculty of Harvard University from 1975 until 2004. She was a member of the Social Enterprise Core Group, where she taught Business Leadership in the Social Sector, as well as in executive programs. She received both her MBA and her doctorate in business administration from the Harvard Business School. Her special interest was in large and complex health systems. She traveled extensively nationally and internationally, working with corporations and hospital systems as they explored innovative ways of providing high-quality and affordable care. Ms. Barrett has worked in many countries, particularly Mexico, Colombia and India, where she assisted their ministries of health in initiating programs for physicians and other healthcare providers. After a long academic career, in 2005 she founded The Fledgling Fund, a private foundation that works at the intersection of film and social change, providing grants to filmmakers who believe that their documentary films can ignite or sustain social change. Ms. Barrett is on the board of the Everglades Foundation, the Lord’s Place, and the Society of the Four Arts, and she is on the visiting committees for Photography and Scientific Conservation at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
