Linda Toche-Manley PhD

Linda has served as Chief Innovation Officer and currently advises several health and education nonprofit organizations. She serves on the Innovation Leadership and Program Committees for Greater Philadelphia Senior Executive Group (GPSEG) and holds a Ph.D. in Applied Psychology from the Claremont Graduate School as well as an Executive Certificate in Corporate Entrepreneurship from Lehigh University.

Linda looks for ways to help the next generation and to find ways to make innovations accessible to everyone, regardless of their background or socioeconomic status. She’s motivated by the words of Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

Linda chooses to serve on HSI’s board to create opportunity for other nonprofits to use innovation as a foundation for widespread social impact.
