Equal pay advocacy organization Women Business Collaborative has named Robin Schwartz to serve as its senior director of development.

Schwartz will assume responsibility for the Women Business Collaborative (WBC)’s revenue streams, including grants, donations, and fundraising events.

She most recently served as director of strategic partnerships and business development at NextUp, a 501c3 nonprofit that advocates for advancing women in business. Prior to that role, she worked in corporate sales in the software and broadcast radio industries in Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle.

“Robin brings the right background, personality and skillset to successfully work with the over 55 corporate sponsors and partners of the WBC to accelerate impact in driving diverse leadership from the C-suite to the boardroom,” said Edie Fraser, chief executive officer of the WBC.

Based in Boise, Idaho, Schwartz currently serves as a member of the Board of Directors for the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) representing Idaho in the Pacific Northwest Region.

She is a graduate of Washington State University.

The Women Business Collaborative, headquartered in Washington, D.C., is an alliance of more than 70 women’s business organizations as well as business leaders building a movement to achieve equal position, pay, and power for all women in business through collaboration, advocacy, action, and accountability.
