Beth Finn

Headshot of Beth Finn

Beth Finn is a technology leader-by-day turned activist-by-night with a passion for leaving the world a better place than she found it. She is a self-described motivator, sky reacher, and over-achiever. She started her 20+ year technology career writing Java applets and desktop applications in C++ and now manages large technology programs for a healthcare analytics company.

Initially an advocate for the brain tumor community and women and girls in STEM, her activism kicked into high gear following the 2016 Presidential election when she was one of the co-founders of the Women’s March on Philadelphia. This life changing experience opened her eyes to the social and economic injustices that are rampant in America today. Beth ran for Philadelphia City Council at Large in the 2019 primary. She now serves as President of Pennsylvania NOW, on the Boards of Americans for Democratic Action SE PA Chapter and the Female Hebrew Benevolent Society, and on the Steering Committees for the Philadelphia Public Banking Coalition and Philly for Change, an affiliate of Democracy for America.

Beth lives with her partner Robert in Philadelphia just a few blocks from the Liberty Bell and loves reading everything she can get her hands on, meeting new people, and being the best aunt in the world.
