Roslyn Payne has had a distinguished career in real estate finance, joint ventures, and development. She appreciates the complexity of real estate decisions which impact how people live, work and play. Roslyn gained appreciation of the regulatory environment when she was CEO of a federally sponsored enterprise created to manage assets during the savings and loan crisis. Today she is a private investor, and a real estate advisor to the University of Washington and University of California, Berkeley.

Within the social sector, Roslyn has a passion for youth education, community development, public health and connecting capital to impact. Involved with the University of Michigan (BBA) and Harvard Business School (MBA), she currently serves on the California Community College Economic and Workforce Development Advisory Committee. Advocating for public health, she is a member of Parents Against Vaping and e-cigarettes, and founded a cross discipline program between the Harvard Business School and Harvard Chan School of Public Health, where she continues on the Board of Dean’s Advisors.

In 2017, in an effort to leverage data and storytelling to drive outcomes, the Payne Family Foundation launched UpMetrics, an analytics and data services company for the social sector. Working with funders and social enterprises to connect data driven capital to mission aligned organizations, Roslyn is looking forward to her fellowship with Stanford DCI for further insights.

Roslyn and her husband Lisle live in San Francisco, and are the parents of two sons. She is an avid reader, and has traveled to over 80 countries.
