Ms. Rebecca Rimel

Term:

Since Apr 1994

Profile:

Rebecca W. Rimel President & Chief Executive Officer During Rebecca Rimel's tenure, the Trusts' work has concentrated on results-oriented, strategic philanthropy. The Trusts, under her leadership, has augmented its national programs while maintaining a significant presence in its home city. Through the work of its grantee partners, The Pew Charitable Trusts has earned a reputation as a fact-based, non-partisan broker of innovative ideas and solutions promoting the public interest. Prior to joining the Trusts, Rebecca Rimel had built an exemplary career in health care, specifically in the field of nursing. From 1981 through 1983, she was assistant professor in the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Virginia Hospital, making her the first nurse to hold a faculty position in the university's medical school. Along with additional teaching and practitioner positions at the University of Virginia Hospital, she was head nurse of the medical center's emergency department. Ms. Rimel began her tenure at The Pew Charitable Trusts in 1983 as health program manager. She became executive director in 1988 and accepted her current position as president and CEO in 1994. In addition to her work at the Trusts, Rebecca Rimel serves on the Deutsche Bank Scudder Funds board, the PNC Bank advisory board and the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce executive committee. She is also trustee emeritus of Monticello (the Thomas Jefferson Foundation); a fellow of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia; and a member of the American Philosophical Society along with its prestigious Wistar Association. Rebecca Rimel received her Bachelor of Science, with distinction, from the University of Virginia School of Nursing (1973), and earned a Master of Business Administration from James Madison University in 1983.

Leadership Statement:

Our challenges today as a nation and a world are serious and urgent, but often seem intractable as policy makers and the public grapple to agree on the nature of the problems—and even on the facts—let alone finding common ground on the solutions. Our challenges nevertheless are neither unprecedented nor beyond our ability—and responsibility—to address. Not just for today, but also to benefit future generations.

Evidence of Impact

The Pew Charitable Trust has been influential in raising awareness about mass incarcerations and has provided well-researched policy recommendations to public officials with strategies specifically tailored to changing the policies in conservative states.

Influential Policy Recommendations
Great work in recent years on convincing state governments to downsize prison populations. Some of the best policy work done in the US. Other
PPSP is having a tremendous impact in conservative states, getting buy-in from state legislatures and the governor, and doing the kind of cost data analysis that is required to convince conservatives to cut corrections budgets. They are able to then marshal political will to put forth reform bills. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Their justice reinvestment strategy is developing expertise and actual reforms within a wide range of states across the country. They have dramatically increased the number of states we can point to who are getting smarter with their corrections policy and spending Nonprofit Senior Staff
Successful Reform
Pew Charitable Trust has been a significant player in reforming state criminal justice laws by working with a broad spectrum of criminal justice stakeholders in select states. Nonprofit Senior Staff
They have helped various states enact corrections reforms Other
Raises Public Awareness
Pew has raised awareness about the magnitude of mass incarceration. Other
Their research has changed the public debate about mass incarceration. Other
Support Faith-Based Initiatives
They are not afraid to support faith-based initiatives, including those run by African-American and Latino faith leaders. Nonprofit Senior Staff

Organizational Strengths

According to experts, the Pew Charitable Trust has largely been successful because of the bipartisan and unbiased nature of its reports and its ability to maintain the respect of experts in the field.

Well-Respected and Influential Organization
Pew Charitable Trust has been successful because of its issue expertise, its capacity to appeal to bi-partisan stakeholders, and its research-based nature. They work an "inside game" to reform criminal justice system by engaging criminal justice professionals to support change from within. Nonprofit Senior Staff
This group is perceived as unbiased, evidenced by their research being frequently cited by groups across the political spectrum. They are also timely, as they've gone after the mass incarceration issue at a time when it has some traction with conservatives. Other
Effective Outreach
They have good outreach and good materials. Other
High Credibility
The fact that they are primarily a research outfit gives them cover as a non-advocacy group. Nonprofit Senior Staff
This group compiles excellent research and has a high profile which provides mainstream credibility. Nonprofit Senior Staff

Areas for Improvement

Experts have noted that the Pew Charitable Trust can improve by paying greater attention to collaborative efforts with grassroots and local movements and by expanding its research focus.

May Harm Other Efforts
Sometimes campaigns from national groups working in states can intentionally limit their involvement to a time frame that may not allow for momentum to build or implementation to occur. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Focus More on Solutions
They could use greater leadership on solutions. Other
More Collaboration with Local Organizations
PSPP keeps advocacy groups that have been a part of the criminal justice reform scene locally out of the process, and this is often to the detriment of implementation of reforms. Nonprofit Senior Staff
They need to get better about developing relationships with groups on the ground in the states they work and figure out how their work leaves lasting infrastructure. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Expand Research
They could expand their research in the area of collateral costs of incarceration. Other
They could take a broader view of corrections. Other
