Among their three children, Glen Kraemer
and his wife Natalie have one New Roads School graduate (’14), and one current Upper School student. Twenty years ago, Glen co-founded the law firm Hirschfeld Kraemer LLP, an employment law and higher education boutique dedicated to ensuring institutional “best practices” in preventing and responding to discrimination, harassment, bullying, and campus and workplace violence. Glen co-manages HK’s offices in Santa Monica, San Francisco and Napa. In addition, following many years as a Vice President of the Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters Board of Directors, Glen had the honor of serving as the first Chairperson of the OUR HOUSE Grief Support Center Board of Directors. This is his second year serving on the Board of Trustees.
Why I Serve
Working with the New Roads Board brings together two passionate interests: the welfare of children and the education of young adults. I am dedicated to the support of the essential ideals associated with the New Roads educational philosophy. In my professional work as Pomona College’s external General Counsel, I see first-hand the results of a pedagogical commitment to nurturing an authentic global perspective, honoring the power and resonance of diversity in cultural, racial and social experience, and providing a compassionate educational foundation fostering intellectual curiosity, innovation, and academic and moral empowerment for all New Roads students and families.
