For the last eight years Wu has served as a staff attorney at GLAD & has been deeply involved in the scope of GLAD’s successful legal, legislative & policy work. He has led GLAD’s coalition work in New Hampshire & Rhode Island & earlier this year he joined GLAD’s leadership team as deputy director. Dianne Phillips, GLAD Board President stated, “We are thrilled & proud to name Janson our new executive director at such an important & forward-looking time for the movement & for GLAD. Janson’s set of skills & talents are uniquely suited to this moment. Beyond his deep knowledge of GLAD, the movement & the issues facing our community both in New England & nationally, Janson brings to the table vision, impressive leadership abilities & the strategic thinking of a successful litigator.” Wu stated, “With all of the gains that GLAD has brought to New England, we now have a unique & exciting opportunity going forward. We are positioned to show the rest of the country what the next stage of our movement could look like if we dream big & keep our eyes on the prize – equal justice under law. I am both happy & humbled to have this chance to play a leadership role for our community.” Wu is a graduate of Harvard College & Harvard Law School & lives in Boston with his husband.
