Lori McGlinchey

Senior Program Officer, Internet Freedom

Lori McGlinchey is a member of the Internet Freedom team. Her grant making has supported a dynamic field of organizations that promote universal access, open systems, and clear protections for the public within the Internet environment.

Before joining the foundation in 2014, Lori oversaw the Open Society Foundations’ Internet, media policy, journalism, and government accountability grant making in the US. She also served as assistant director of OSF’s US programs and created a new initiative to strengthen civil society organizations’ technology, governance, communications, and leadership capacity. In addition, Lori developed portfolios and strategies to address the politicization of science-based US policy making and its impact on access to information, whistle-blower protections, science education, and reproductive rights.

Lori has also been a radio producer and created a series for NPR called Jewish Short Stories from Eastern Europe and Beyond, which featured Lauren Bacall, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Leonard Nimoy, and Walter Matthau. She serves on the steering committee of the Media Democracy Fund and on the board of Media Impact Funders.

Lori earned her bachelor's degree in American studies from Amherst College.
