Bonem, Julia '87BC
Julia Bonem is a coach who helps corporate executives transition to the nonprofit sector and nonprofit professionals move up in their field. She has over 24 years of nonprofit experience. Julia was a senior fundraising officer for 14 years at leading academic institutions such at MIT, Johns Hopkins, Barnard, and the University of Pennsylvania. For over a decade, she was Vice President of a boutique executive recruiting firm serving nonprofit clients (such as Columbia, NYU, the Metropolitan Opera, among many others) on a retained basis.
