As a Research Fellow with SICI, Libby works primarily with founder and faculty chair Professor Julie Battilana to disseminate the knowledge and ideas in her forthcoming book, Power, for All: How It Really Works and Why It’s Everyone’s Business, co-authored by Professor Tiziana Casciaro. Prior to this role, Libby supported Julie, as well as several other faculty at Harvard Business School, on several MBA, Doctoral, and Executive Education courses. Her interest in the book publication process stems from the opportunities she had to work as an editorial assistant on various books written by HBS faculty, ranging from an edited volume to single-author texts. Prior to coming to Harvard, Libby worked primarily in healthcare.
For several years, she sat on The Fenway Institute’s Boston HIV Research Community Advisory Board. As the Chair of the Event Planning Subcommittee, Libby helped design and oversee events that sought to connect communities affected by HIV/AIDS, through art and storytelling. Through these events, Libby was able to exercise her passion for both public health and art and demonstrate the immovable connection between the two. She hopes to eventually continue a career in health policy and patient advocacy, with a focus on disability rights activism and sexual wellness. Libby received her B.A. from Mount Holyoke College in Religion and Politics.
