This week, the OSI-Baltimore Advisory Board officially added two new members, Catalina Rodriguez-Lima and Kenneth Jones.
Catalina Rodriguez Lima is the Founding Director of the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MIMA) in Baltimore City and a longstanding member of OSI’s Leadership Council. As Director of MIMA, Catalina is responsible for promoting community well-being, economic development, and the inclusion of immigrant and refugee communities in the City of Baltimore. Under her leadership, MIMA partnered with OSI on the Safe City Baltimore and, in 2020, OSI backed MIMA’s efforts to support for immigrant families impacted by COVID-19. A native of Ecuador, Catalina moved to the United States in 2000.
Kenneth “Ken” Jones is Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the MacArthur Foundation, where he is responsible for all aspects of the finance, accounting, tax, audit, information technology, administrative services and facilities functions. In addition, Ken implements and evaluates the Foundation’s financial objectives and performance to support MacArthur’s priorities and programs. Prior to joining the MacArthur Foundation, Ken was the Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for the Annie E. Casey Foundation.
“Ken’s institutional governance expertise and Catalina’s expertise working with immigrant communities and other marginalized communities are going to augment the Board’s deep bench of talent,” says OSI Advisory Board Chair Jamar Brown. “I have no doubt that they will have a lot to contribute to the strategic planning for OSI-Baltimore and lead us into the next decade of our work.”
