Gail Schneider

Gail A. Schneider, J.D., M.A.P.P., brings to positive psychology an extensive background from the world of big business. She began her career at a large Wall Street law firm followed by 20 years at JPMorganChase where she was an Executive Vice-President managing businesses that generated over two billion dollars of revenue for the company. During her career she sat on several Boards of Directors, authored numerous articles and was a popular public speaker. She has received a national award for women’s achievement in business and served as a David Rockefeller Fellow, a position held by a select group of New York corporate leaders who meet with the Mayor and his deputies and commissioners to explore ways the private and public sectors can work together to solve critical issues facing the city.
 

Most recently she has worked closely with Martin Seligman, Ph. D. on consulting assignments introducing positive psychology principles into the domains of business and education. Gail is currently writing a memoir about her experiences as a senior woman in corporate America and her decision to leave, prompting the personal mid-life journey of transition and transformation that led her to positive psychology. She has developed a workshop entitled “Positive Psychology in Mid-life: Facing Transitions, Searching for Meaning” and will be writing on these and other topics bi-monthly on the 23rd day of the evenly numbered months.

Gail holds a B.A. degree in English and History of Art from Cornell University and a J.D., cum laude from Brooklyn Law School where she was an Editor of the Brooklyn Law Review. She has attended intensive executive educational programs at Harvard Business School and Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business and completed her Masters in Applied Positive Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania in 2007.
