Jillian Olinger

Jillian Olinger is the Chief Mission Officer for YWCA Columbus, where she advocates for the elimination of racism, empowerment of women, and peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. Prior to joining the YWCA, Jillian spent ten years as an applied researcher with the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at The Ohio State University, where she developed expertise in a variety of social justice issues, including fair housing and fair credit; the intersection of child well-being and community development; and healthy neighborhoods. Her passion has always been housing; without access to safe, stable, and affordable housing, many other areas of life become that much more difficult to navigate, and she hopes to use her position on the Commission to advocate for increased access to quality housing for Central Ohio families.
