CURATION ON PURPOSE
OUR ORIGIN STORY IN A NUTSHELL
Lynne D. Filderman, Founder and Chief Curation Officer of CUROP, has worked with some of the nation’s largest brands to amplify their thought leadership and find creative ways to engage audiences through authentic and meaningful partnerships and events.
During the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic, Filderman decided to form
Curation On Purpose LLC to work with a range of industries and sectors, with laser-like focus on curating outcome-driven thought leadership designed to scale impact regionally, nationally and globally.
There is no time to waste in bringing people together and work to address some of our most pressing social and environmental challenges.

LYNNE D. FILDERMAN
Founder & Chief Curation Officer
Lynne Filderman’s 40+ year professional life is purpose-driven, beginning in the technology policy arena and evolving into a career as an independent consultant to create strategic, world class, and innovative corporate and nonprofit initiatives, events and partnerships. As a life-long learner, she continually grows with each new project and client. And, the best project is the next one she takes on.
At this point in Filderman's professional life, she seeks to have the biggest impact on a national and global scale and work with dedicated, purposeful people to do so. If our collective action means anything, it must be designed to ensure a future for all of our young people so each one can achieve their highest potential.
Filderman is founder and chief curation officer at Curation On Purpose. Over the past 6 years, she served as Executive Producer of the 3BL Forum: Brands Taking Stands and built its brand and reputation that brought Fortune 500 corporate leaders to the ‘high-octane’ stage featuring authentic and candid conversations on how they are navigating the rapidly changing business environment. She also serves as Executive Producer of the Green Sports Alliance summit that brings together leaders from the sports and entertainment eco-systems to engage in authentic conversations about how they are leveraging their positions to catalyze impact on climate, environment and social issues, including women’s leadership, fan and audience engagement, community impact and more. The most recent summit was held in June 2023 in a take over of Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, WA where she orchestrated the stage featuring 90 speakers, including the Governor, Mayor and U.S. EPA Assistant Administrator, and a special musical performance by students from Seattle’s JazzED.
She has a keen interest in mentoring young professionals to share lessons learned from her experiences and support their career paths that align with their purpose and vision.
Over the course of her professional life, she has worked with some of the nation's leading organizations, including Sesame Street, Chief Executives for Corporate Purpose, Booz Allen Hamilton, Corporate Conversations on Purpose, Green Sports Alliance, PGA’s Booz Allen Classic, American National Red Cross, America’s Charities, 3BL Media, Social Venture Partners Miami, Program of Policy Studies in Science and Technology, U.S. Congressional Office of Technology Assessment and others. Some of that work included building strategic partnerships with national brand retailers and regional media to support nonprofit capacity building, and managing relationships around special exhibitions at National Gallery of Art and Smithsonian American Art Museum.
Filderman is a proud native of Washington, D.C. and received an M.A. in Science, Technology, and Public Policy from The George Washington University.
