Ms. Rand joins Woodstock Institute after 12 years at the Sargent Shriver
National Center
on Poverty Law in Chicago,
most recently as the supervising attorney of the Center’s Community Investment
Unit.  In this position, Ms. Rand
advocated for and represented lower-income people on welfare law and public
policy issues at the local, state, and national levels.  She and her staff focused on expanding
community reinvestment and asset-building opportunities that move people from
poverty to prosperity.

Shriver Center President John Bouman said, "Dory built a
wonderful record of accomplishments at the Shriver Center
helping low-income people build assets, and this is sure to continue as she
assumes leadership at Woodstock Institute."

Ms. Rand’s appointment is effective Wednesday July 16th,
2008.  She succeeds Malcolm Bush, who
resigned in February after a 15 year term to become a Research Fellow at the Chapin Hall Center for Children at the University of Chicago.
