Jenny Sorin

YLC Co-Chair

Jenny Sorin is an Associate Director of Business and Program Development at the Milken Institute based in New York City. Prior to joining the Institute, she spent three years building IDiF, a 501(c)(3) organization devoted to promoting equitable capital allocation in asset management. IDiF has since evolved into the IDAC Foundation, with a focus on financial literacy. Jenny is also an accomplished documentary producer whose work has been featured across major networks including PBS, HBO, and MSNBC. Her most recent credits include Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates Jr. for PBS, and "The Newspaperman: The Life and Times of Ben Bradlee" for HBO Feature Documentaries. Jenny received her B.A in Social Anthropology from Cornell University.

In 2018, Jenny learned that she carried a BRCA1 mutation. After watching her mother battle breast cancer not once--but twice--Jenny elected to undergo a prophylactic double mastectomy followed by reconstruction. Since then, Jenny has been a dedicated member of the Basser Young Leadership Council and committed to raising money for BRCA-related research. She was elected as Co-Chair for the YLC in 2021.
