Judith Meyers is a licensed clinical and community psychologist with over 35 years of experience working in the nonprofit, academic, government and philanthropic sectors. She recently stepped down from serving 18 years as the first President and CEO of the Children’s Fund of Connecticut (CFC), a public charitable foundation, and its subsidiary, the Child Health and Development Institute of Connecticut (CHDI). She has been a leader in the philanthropic community, having served nine years as a board member of the Connecticut Council for Philanthropy (a statewide membership organization with 111 members and the voice of philanthropy in CT) including two years as Chair (2016-2018). She is a founding member of the Connecticut Early Childhood Funders Collaborative that comprises 16 foundations, and was a founding member of the Behavioral Health Funders Network at Grantmakers in Health. She serves as one of seven Trustees of the Grossman Family Foundation. Earlier in her career, she was a Senior Associate at the Annie E. Casey Foundation. She has worked as a policy advisor on the staff of governors in two states and in the US House of Representatives as a Congressional Science Fellow. She has experience in and working knowledge of the health, mental health, education, child welfare, juvenile justice, and social welfare systems, but can readily apply her well-honed research and analytic skills to a broad range of content areas that may arise in working with individuals and families. As a licensed psychologist, she is experienced in understanding and working with families to help them integrate different and sometimes conflicting points of view to reach common ground that respects and incorporates the passions, interests and values among and across generations of family members. Judith holds a BA from the University of Michigan, a PhD from the University of Colorado, and completed postdoctoral fellowships at Yale University. She is a clinical faculty member at the Yale Child Study Center and the University of Connecticut School of Medicine’s Department of Pediatrics and Psychiatry.
