VP, People Operations
EquityZen is Linda's third time as a company's first Human Resources (aka "People Ops") leader in the startup world. Prior to building the HR functions at Schoology and Meetup, she worked for Fortune 500 companies that include Scholastic and Morgan Stanley where her proudest moment was receiving the 2000 Women of Achievement Award from the office of Mayor Giuliani for the work she did in successfully providing jobs and life-changing opportunities to more than 50 women on welfare.
Linda graduated Summa Cum Laude from the CUNY Baccalaureate Program of Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies where she was also the proud recipient of a Thomas W. Smith Academic Fellowship.
Linda spends her non-work time taking yoga, binge-watching Shark Tank, hiking, philosophizing with her husband, and planning her next travel adventure.
