Jennifer Dulski is Head of Groups and Community at Facebook. In this role, she leads Facebook Groups— a product central to the new Facebook mission to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together.
Jennifer is an accomplished leader and entrepreneur, with more than 18 years of experience in both successful startups and big-brand internet companies. Prior to Facebook, Jennifer served as president and COO of Change.org, a social enterprise company that empowers people everywhere to start and win campaigns for change. Under her leadership, Change.org grew from 18 million users to more than 180 million, and many thousands of social change campaigns were successful around the world.
She was an early Yahoo! employee, rising in the ranks over her nine-year tenure to ultimately lead one of the company’s six business units as group VP and general manager of Local and Marketplaces. In 2007, Jennifer left Yahoo! to become CEO of The Dealmap, a mobile, location-based deals site that Google acquired in 2011, making Jennifer the first woman to sell a company to Google. She stayed at Google for nearly two years as a senior executive before joining Change.org.
Jennifer’s new book, Purposeful: Are You a Manager or a Movement Starter?, a rousing guide combining her own experience with stories of other inspiring leaders to show how we all have the power to start movements that matter, was released by Portfolio on May 22.
