is an enthusiastic advocate for science, health and the arts. After moving to San Francisco from Europe in 1976, she was first introduced to non-profit leadership through her sons’ school boards: Town School, University High School and the Cate School. She also served on the boards of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the American Conservatory Theater. In the 1980’s and early 1990’s, Dagmar devoted significant time as a board member and then President of the Northern California Chapter of Achievement Rewards for College Scientists (ARCS), a volunteer women’s group that has raised over $90 million nationally for graduate students in science, technology and medicine. Over the last 20 years, she has become a national champion for reproductive rights and Alzheimer’s research. Dagmar founded the amazingly successful San Francisco Power of Choice Luncheon for NARAL Pro-Choice America and served on its national foundation board for 15 years. Now her energy and philanthropy are focused on supporting Alzheimer’s research, care and advocacy, after living with the challenges of this disease faced by her late husband.
