Close on the heels of our announcement of new leadership positions at Slover Linett, we’re happy to share the news of another well-deserved promotion. Dr. Nicole Baltazar, who has been a Research Analyst at the firm since 2012, has been named an Associate. In the new position, she will lead research projects and become a thought-partner to our clients in the arts, cultural philanthropy, science engagement, and other fields.
“We’ve all loved working with Nicole, and we’ve learned so much from and with her since she joined the team,” said the firm’s president, Sarah Lee. “And so have our clients. So it’s a real pleasure to promote her to the associate role, where she’ll be designing and leading studies and mentoring and collaborating with our research analysts.”
Dr. Baltazar did her doctoral work in social and developmental psychology at the University of Chicago, and she brings that experimental social science perspective to her research and evaluation work with cultural organizations. At Slover Linett, she has played key roles in both qualitative and quantitative studies for the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History; the New York Philharmonic and other arts grantees of the Wallace Foundation; Levitt Pavilions; the Irvine Foundation; the National Science Foundation-funded Art of Science Learning initiative; Chicago Opera Theater; and other clients.
