Children’s Defense Fund-Ohio Announces New Leadership

COLUMBUS, March 5, 2018: Children’s Defense Fund-Ohio (CDF-Ohio) has announced that Tracy Nájera, Ph.D, MPA, has joined the organization as executive director.


Ms. Nájera, who began her career with CDF-Ohio as a Research Fellow, brings a long-standing commitment to improving the lives of children and their families to her new role. 


As a recent Senior Consultant for Education First Consulting, Tracy supported school districts and education partners to improve education outcomes for children.  She also served for six years as a Senior Director of the Ohio Appalachian Collaborative at Battelle for Kids, where she managed a federal project with the state of Ohio to improve the efficacy of teachers serving students in Appalachian Ohio. 


She also led the team working with CFD-Ohio on the 2016 release of Ohio’s Appalachian Children at a Crossroads: A Roadmap for Action report.  Previously, Tracy spent eight years at the State Office of Budget and Management, a majority of which she served as the Section Chief for Education.


For 37 years, CDF-Ohio has been committed to making Ohio the best place for children to grow, learn and thrive.  “Tracy’s understanding of the complexity of the issues impacting Ohio’s children makes her the ideal person to lead the organization and continue to build what CDF-Ohio has achieved over the years” said Marian Wright Edelman, President of Children’s Defense Fund.
