Corby Herschman moved to Atlanta in 2013 and has entrenched herself in the nonprofit community. From 2013 to 2014 she worked with the Georgia Center for Nonprofits as a development manager, and since 2014 she has been the director of development for Girls Inc. of Greater Atlanta. Herschman, who recently completed her M.B.A. at Emory’s Goizueta School of Business, is a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals and the Young Nonprofit Professional Network of Atlanta.

An active part of Jewish Atlanta, Herschman was a member of the American Jewish Committee ACCESS steering committee from 2013 to 2016, including serving as the vice chair of membership in 2014-15. She was a member of the Anti-Defamation League’s Glass Leadership Institute Class of 2016 and the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta’s Jacobson Leadership Institute Class of 2015.

Herschman, who lives in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward, is an avid traveler and recently returned from visiting her 30th country. “Thanks to generous support from previous generations, we have a solid foundation to grow, innovate and further develop our own Jewish identities,” she said. “There is so much potential in this generation, and I believe we will see a lot of social issues solved by Jewish organizations and young social entrepreneurs.”
