August 28, 2017 - Organizational Update

Introducing the FY 2018 Officers of Impact Austin’s Board of Directors

A great organization has great leadership, and Impact Austin is no exception. A special group of Impact Austin members toils behind the scenes for the benefit of all of us and our goal is for you to get to know them better. We start here with the Officers of our Board of Directors, but keep checking in, because there is more to come!

Impact Austin Board President Lauren Paver

Lauren Paver, President
Higher Order Consulting, Founder & Principal Consultant

A member of Impact Austin and a fan since 2008, I have been participating on grant review committees, membership, marketing, technology, finance, the hiring of our Executive Directors, grants innovation and more... 

I'm drawn to Impact Austin and dedicate my time here because I fundamentally believe in what we do - educating women to be philanthropists and I geek out in thinking about what we're going to do next in the course of the upcoming 15 years.

I love working with organizations and people, creating a career in strategy, planning, and execution. 

I am from Fort Worth originally, attended Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas and have called Austin home for the past 12 years. 

When not investing my spare time with IA, I'm running my own business Higher Order Consulting, being a mom to three great kids, Brendan (8), Quinn (5), and Fitz (2), trekking along the hill country on my Ducati Monster motorcycle, enjoying a good book, cooking or trail running.

Through Impact Austin, Dipti is dedicated to helping women become philanthropists right here in our community.

Impact Austin Board Secretary Judy McKenzie

Judy MacKenzie, Secretary
Community Volunteer

I am a transplant from the Northeast but have been in Austin for long enough that I (practically) feel like a native. Since retiring as an IBM Manager, I volunteer "all over the place" and love to recruit new members for Impact Austin. It's a challenge for me to fit long-distance travel into my busy schedule, but I am highly motivated to do so, so I make it happen.
