Anna Eleanor "Anne" Roosevelt is the President/CEO of Goodwill Industries of Northern New England, a non-profit social enterprise with more than 2,000 employees serving Maine, New Hampshire and northern Vermont.

Goodwill operates diverse retail, health care and workforce services that help individuals and families find stability through work while extending a 100-year practice of letting nothing go to waste.

During her visit with Lakeside, Roosevelt will share what "A Meaningful Life' is for her. Whether it's through a career, raising a family, creating art or volunteering, Roosevelt believes that having a sense of purpose to work towards can provide a fulfilling life.

With work comes dignity, purpose and the opportunity to learn and connect with others; this is at the heart of the Goodwill Industries mission.

In addition to sharing the Goodwill story, Roosevelt will reflect on what has been meaningful to her throughout her life; the role of work, the influence of family, the importance of belonging and a sense of place and community.

Roosevelt joined Goodwill in 2011 from The Boeing Company in Chicago where she had held the position of Vice President of Global Corporate Citizenship. Her career encompassed leadership positions in philanthropy, public policy, politics, the arts and higher education.

In 2013, she was presented with the Queen’s Commissioners Medal of Merit of the Province of Zeeland in the Netherlands. This award was given in recognition of her work carrying forward the legacy and values of her grandparents, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, through the annual joint presentation of the Four Freedoms Awards.

Currently, Roosevelt chairs the Roosevelt Institute Board of Directors in New York, which exists to support the Institute’s mission of continuing the legacy of her grandparents, and serves on the boards of the Maine Community Foundation, Jim Browne Foundation and Net Impact. She's a Fellow at the Center for Corporate Citizenship at Boston College and is Alternate Commissioner for the Roosevelt Campobello International Park Commission.

Roosevelt holds a bachelor’s degree from Stanford University and a Master of Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
