Tess Pyne is the Executive Secretary for the Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Equity. She began her career at Lehigh in the Center for Gender Equity in 2018. Tess is deeply passionate about inclusion work, and is dedicated to supporting the Lehigh Community and beyond in creating inclusive spaces. Through the support of the Lehigh Community, she is able to share learning with her daughters, who in turn have advocated for inclusion in their spaces. This is one of many ways that the Community at Lehigh impacts the spaces around them. Outside of work, Tess enjoys spending time with her husband and step-daughters. Her family is completed by two cats, two German Shepherds, and Princess Buttercup.
