Ellen Galinsky Biography

Ellen Galinsky is the chief science officer
 at the Bezos Family Foundation where she also serves as executive director of Mind in the Making. In addition, she is a senior research advisor for the Society for Human Resource Management. She also remains president of Families and Work Institute. Her life’s work revolves identifying important societal questions as they emerge, conducting research to seek answers, and turning the findings into action. She strives to be ahead of the curve, to address compelling issues, and to provide rigorous data that can affect our lives.

She researched and co-authored a book about exemplary child care, "The New Extended Family: Day Care That Works", then used the lessons learned to help found the Family Center at Bank Street and subsequently to conduct a series of quantitative studies on the impact of interventions to improve the quality of child care and children’s development.

In the 1980s, she studied how parents grow and change as adults and then wrote the now classic "Six Stages of Parenthood". The findings from that initiative led to a series of studies on parent-professional relationships.

Seeing how important work-life issues are, she helped to establish the field of work-life in the 1980s and co-founded Families and Work Institute (FWI) in 1989, becoming its president in 1996.

She wrote the best-selling book, "Mind in the Making: The Seven Essential Life Skills Every Child Needs". In March 2016, "Mind in the Making" became a program of the Bezos Family Foundation. Its mission is to promote Life Skills that are based on and promote Executive Functions.

Her career highlights include writing more than 100 books and reports and over 300 articles, serving as a child care expert in the TV series "What Every Baby Knows" with Dr. T. Berry Brazelton; serving as a parent expert in the "Mister Rogers Talks to Parents" TV series; being the elected President of the National Association for the Education of Young Children; being elected as a member of National Academy of Human Resources. She has received a number of awards including the Distinguished Achievement Award from Vassar College and has spoken at five White House conference on children and family issues.
