Please join Sophia Founder, Sister Mary Reilly, RSM, past Women of Wisdom Liz Chace, Anne Szostak, Joan Wernig Sorensen, and Suzanne Murray and  event co-chairs: Patricia Andreu, Sara Shea McConnell and Joan Wernig Sorensen to celebrate.

This wonderful event supports – and highlights – the important mission of Sophia: Changing the lives of girls from low income homes through an empowering middle school education.

“We are thrilled to recognize Suzanne,” Maura Farrell, Sophia Head of School, said. “She is a generous and creative leader who has made a critical impact at Sophia. Her compassion fuels a quest to empower young women through education, and her unwavering kindness reflects Sophia’s core values. We’re honored that she is part of our community.”

As a member of the Sophia board, Magaziner made countless contributions, including working to strengthen the board’s governance policies and procedures, and fostering community partnerships, such as with Trinity Rep.

“She has never forgotten the financial generosity of others when it came to achieving her own academic success, and long ago made the commitment to support other young women in their pursuit of a quality education,” Alison Eichler, Sophia Board President said. “Her astute business sense, combined with her genuine big-heartedness has made her a powerful advocate for Sophia.”

Magaziner currently serves as Board President of Trinity Rep, and was recently recognized as a 2018 YWCA Woman of Achievement. She is a graduate of Wellesley College, Harvard Law School, Harvard Business School and has a Master’s degree in history from Brown University. She made her career in business strategy consulting and co-founded an international consulting firm with her husband, Ira.
