Wyoming Women's Foundation, Executive Director
Richelle Keinath holds a Master of Arts degree in American Studies from the University of Wyoming, where she focused her research on marginalized individuals in the health care system. Keinath also has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, majoring in Accounting from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio.
Before coming to WYWF she spent the previous four years working with senior citizens and the challenges that face the aging population as the Co-Executive Director of the Eppson Center for Seniors in Laramie. Non-profit administration and program management are two areas of accomplishment.
Since coming to WYWF Richelle has been instrumental in bringing the WAGE Project workshops to 10 communities across Wyoming, a key element to addressing the wage gap. Has facilitated grant making to organizations across the state that are working on economic self sufficiency issues for Wyoming’s women and mentorship and leadership opportunities for our girls. Richelle helped facilitate the adoption of Equality Initiatives under the Wyoming Women’s Foundation and launched the first advocacy campaign for WYWF, childcare as a workforce issue. WYWF will continue to grow its advocacy arm working for “systems change” that benefits the women and girls of Wyoming.
Over the course of her career, Richelle has been involved with grass roots efforts to bring issues of nutrition, poverty, transportation, gender inequity, housing, and isolation to the attention of Wyoming’s law makers. In addition, she served on the Friends of the Albany County Public Library Board and continues to serve on the Laramie Reproductive Health Board and the Albany County Resource Center Board.
