As a consultant, Dr. Joni S. Steinberg manages The Patterson Foundation’s (TPF) Advancing Philanthropic Leadership (APL) initiative. In collaboration with Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, the APL initiative encompasses innovative efforts to strengthen the capabilities of emerging philanthropic leaders. This initiative includes TPF’s Fellow’s Program and TPF lead teaching roles in Lilly School of Philanthropy graduate course offerings.
Dr. Steinberg’s career in academia centered around graduate management education. Through most of that career, she was a professor, graduate program manager, and student advisor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. A significant focus for her health administration and public health masters and doctoral graduate students was preparation for management or research careers with nonprofit organizations and NGOs in the U.S. and globally. Each year, Dr. Steinberg worked actively with graduating students pursuing fellowship positions in the health administration sector. When she retired in 2018, Tulane University awarded Dr. Steinberg Professor Emerita status.
Dr. Steinberg’s teaching, consulting, and publications focused on the application of quantitative methods to health care, health administration processes and data-driven decision making, health systems, management and policy, and information systems.
She earned her PhD in management science (finance minor) and MPH from Tulane University, her MS in industrial and systems engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, and her BS in mathematics (computer science minor) from the University of Miami.
Since moving to Sarasota in 1990, Dr. Steinberg has been an active community volunteer serving on several nonprofit boards of directors. She has one son and family living in Sarasota, and her other son lives in Alexandria, VA. Both sons grew up in Sarasota and graduated from Pine View School.
