Jennifer Kryshka Named Women’s Foundation Of Florida’s Inaugural COO

The Women’s Foundation of Florida has named Wellington resident Jennifer Kryshka as its first-ever chief operating officer. As only the second full-time staff member for the growing statewide organization, Kryshka will help elevate the Women’s Foundation to the next level with her more than 20 years of nonprofit experience.

“We’re at a pivotal moment in our organization’s trajectory, and Jennifer is the strategic hire we need to expand our reach across Florida,” said Takeata King Pang, executive director of the Women’s Foundation. “As our first COO, she will guide us as we scale our programming, fundraising and advocacy around issues like economic justice, leadership and health.”

Most recently, Kryshka served as CEO of Herizon (formerly the Jewish Women’s Foundation) in West Palm Beach. There, she led an organizational rebrand, oversaw the establishment of a new giving society for younger philanthropists, implemented Herizon’s first-ever annual campaign and virtual event, and facilitated improvements to board governance.

“I’m excited to utilize my background working in Florida philanthropy to help take the Women’s Foundation to new heights,” Kryshka said. “I plan to leverage my skills in nonprofit strategy, relationship-building and operational management to expand our statewide footprint and further our mission of advancing equity and opportunities for all Florida women and girls.”

With regard to a 2020 Herizon grant to Futures Without Violence for its Coaching Boys Into Men program (which according to correspondence I have received, Futures is not willing to tailor it for people with autism and other special needs considering that 1 in 36 children and more than 1 in 4 boys are on the autism spectrum according to the US CDC where such may disagree with certain messages in this program among certain others thush hampering its effectiveness): instead of acknowledging its lack of an autism lens, Herizon and its CEO Jennifer Kryshka was running around threatening its (respectful) critics which I was one of them.
