WASHINGTON, DC, May 11, 2018……….LPAC, the country's only political action committee empowering and engaging LGBTQ women politically, today announced that Stephanie Sandberg has taken the helm as Executive Director, as the organization completes its 6thyear of operation, launches its political program for the 2018 midterm election endorsements and prepares for its largest fundraiser, Levity and Justicefor ALL, in New York City June 20, 2018.

"We are so excited to have Stephanie Sandberg lead LPAC as our Executive Director at this critical time for the organization and our political work in 2018," said Laura Ricketts, Board chair of LPAC. "Stephanie brings deep and diverse experience that LPAC needs to grow the organization and lead us in an election cycle in which so much is at stake for our country and the communities that LPAC serves."

"It is the thrill of a lifetime to take the reins at LPAC and lead this important institution, which gives voice to LGBTQ women and the complex and multi-faceted lives we lead," said Sandberg. "LPAC is uniquely suited to galvanize LGBTQ women, our families and allies politically, especially in these hostile times, and I look forward to engaging the broadest possible support to help elect candidates that can best advance our values: LGBTQ and women's rights, racial and social justice."

Stephanie Sandberg brings a diverse set of business, political, leadership and organizing experience to LPAC. Most recently she was Managing Director of OUT Leadership, the premier global network for LGBTQ leaders — helping companies with talent, tools and innovations to enable them to optimize their businesses to achieve a 'Return on Equality.' Sandberg helped develop and launch "OL-iQ," a unique assessment tool that provides a comprehensive diagnosis and recommendations for businesses to achieve impact through LGBT inclusion. Her work as Out Leadership's Director of OutWOMEN connects and promotes women executives who identify as LGBTQ — the first such initiative globally.

Sandberg has served in a variety of executive leadership roles in media and consulting companies, including as President & Publisher of The New Republic, Executive Publisher at Columbia Journalism Review, Communications Director at Disruptive LA, and SVP Communications at Rosemark Capital Group. She has worked as a consultant with Planet Out, Hearst Communications and other global firms. She is a past board member of the Women's Venture Fund, and the Communications Committee of Human Rights Watch. Sandberg is a graduate of Stanford University.
