JHF Helps Establish Aradhna Award for Leadership Honoring Oliphant’s Legacy

Leadership Pittsburgh Inc. is working with a wide range of community and philanthropic organizations to develop the annual Aradhna Award for Leadership, or the Aradhna Award, in honor of former Leadership Pittsburgh Inc. (LPInc.) CEO and friend of the Jewish Healthcare Foundation (JHF), Aradhna Oliphant. JHF is proud to contribute funds to help establish the Award in honor of Oliphant's work here in Pittsburgh.

The Award will annually recognize a graduate of one of the corporation's core programs: Leadership Pittsburgh for established leaders; the Leadership Development Initiative for emerging leaders; or the Community Leadership Course for Veterans for post-9/11 veterans who has made a significant contribution to the Greater Pittsburgh community. Each of these awards is reflective of the leadership traits that Oliphant has shown during her 16-year tenure at LPInc., the region's premier community leadership development organization.

Under Aradhna's leadership, LPInc. has received local and national awards for governance and innovation. She has served on the boards of Chatham University, First Commonwealth Financial Corporation, Institute of Politics at University of Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Parking Authority, among others. She has been recognized for her innovation and leadership as a Woman of Distinction by several area civic organizations; in 2015 Pittsburgh Magazine recognized her as one of the 25 most influential people in the region; and in 2019 the Pittsburgh Business Times chose her as one of the top 100 most powerful business leaders.

Oliphant is a former president of the Pittsburgh International Women's Forum and is an active member with JHF CEO and President Karen Wolk Feinstein, PhD, and JHF and WHAMglobal Board President Debra Caplan, MPA. Oliphant has joined Dr. Feinstein and Caplan for IWF conferences i­­­n Australia, Spain, and Toronto.
