Grady Lenkin

Special Assistant to the President & Founder

Grady supports The Harwood Institute’s mission through business development and network cultivation.

He is a graduate of Duke University where he majored in Public Policy and co-founded Peer for You, a student-based mental health resource for undergraduates. After college, Grady spent a year in Bangalore, India researching low income neighborhoods and slums. His efforts were part of a team that pioneered several techniques for identifying and classifying slum neighborhoods. Prior to The Harwood Institute, he also worked in the commercial real estate industry.

When not indulging in DC’s vast offering of museums, Grady spends his free time rock climbing, road biking, and hiking.
