Jane Wei-Skillern is an adjunct associate professor at the Haas School

of Business at University of California, Berkeley. Previously, she has

served on the faculty at the Stanford Graduate School of Business,

Harvard Business School (HBS), and London Business School. She is the

author and coauthor of dozens of HBS case studies, book chapters, and

journal articles. She is the lead author of the casebook,

Entrepreneurship in the Social Sector (Sage Publications, 2007). Her

research on the leadership and management of social enterprises

examines the topics of nonprofit growth and management of multi-site

nonprofits, and most recently has been focused on nonprofit networks.

This research examines how nonprofit leaders that focus less on

building their own institutions and instead invest to build strategic

networks beyond their organizational boundaries can achieve dramatic

gains in mission impact with the same or fewer resources. Wei-Skillern

earned a bachelor’s degree in business from the Haas School of

Business at UC Berkeley, a master’s degree in business research, and a

doctorate in organizational behavior, both from the Graduate School of

Business at Stanford University.
