Sacramento G&L Center Appoints New Executive Director 
Wendy Hill

After a three-month search that included over fifty applicants, the Sacramento Gay & Lesbian Center has selected Wendy Rea Hill as its new Executive Director.

“We are excited that Wendy has accepted our invitation to serve as the new Executive Director,” said Gail Mancarti, the Center’s Board President. “We believe she brings the right combination of talents that will help us expand programs and make the Center a highly respected location for advocating and building our community.”

A search committee was formed in January that included the board and members living in the greater Sacramento area. Search Committee

“Making a recommendation from the three finalists was difficult as each would make valuable contributions to the future success of the Center,” said committee member Aaron Eichenberger. “However, after speaking with personal references, members of the community and allies, the committee selected the person we believe can best lead the Center at this important time in its history.”

Hill is enthused about leading the Center as it fulfills its mission to provide a safe gathering place for LGBTQI people of all ages and builds on its ability to be a major conduit for positive change and leadership within the community.

“I am ready to work with all segments of our community to form partnerships, increase services and provide financial security that makes the Center a success story,” said Hill.

A recent graduate of the American Leadership Forum, Hill has a great interest in many of the region’s diverse populations and has acted as a bridge for the LGBTQI community to these populations.  Her work at the State Capitol and in the community has revolved around creating and implementing programs and campaigns that require a large-scale mobilization of community members.

She was also the first Chair of the Sacramento Stonewall Democrats Women’s Caucus, served on the governing board of the Gay Straight Alliance Network where she led fundraising and planning teams for the Queer Youth Advocacy Day in Sacramento, was a board member on CAPPAC and California NOW.

Hill resides in Sacramento with her fiancée, Dr. Carrie Tedrick, and is the mother of two adopted children, Aidyn and Addison. She is an adjunct faculty member at Pacific Union College where she teaches Macro Social Work Practice and Community Organizing.
