Presidential Speakers Series- Melissa Baez, Assets. Join us in welcoming Melisa Baez, Director of the Women's Business Center at Assets.

As an alumnae of Temple University, Melisa knew her passion was in community relations and social impact. With every opportunity that was presented to her, she continued to build upon her skills. Joining the Children Deserve a Chance Foundation (CDCF) in 2011 became a remarkable opportunity for her that unveiled what would become her life passion. As the director of programs for this non-profit in Lancaster, PA, her focus was to motivate and guide at-risk youth on a path toward attaining a degree of higher education, and leave a legacy in their community. Her role developed into a high impact position as the co-founder of the college prep program, Attollo. Beyond her experience with Children Deserve a Chance Foundation, she continues to expand her knowledge in social change by speaking at the local schools about personal leadership through the What In The World program. Melisa is also a recipient of the Cordes Fellowship, serves as a member of Global Shapers (Lancaster, PA hub), and sits on the Board of Directors for the Lancaster Chamber of Commerce.
