Linda Mason '80
Chairman and Cofounder, Bright Horizons
Our culture is our most important business asset. We don't produce widgets. We produce care and love and education for young children.
Linda Mason cofounded and led Bright Horizons, which provides employer-supported childcare to more than 850 companies in the U.S., the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Canada, and India. Earlier in her career, she worked in a refugee camp on the Thai-Cambodia border and for Save the Children in the Sudan. She now chairs the board of Mercy Corps, an international relief and development organization.
Mason spoke to Yale SOM students in 2013 about a career building and leading mission-driven, fiscally sound enterprises.
