Darla Wolfe '06 EMBA
When Darla Wolfe ’06 EMBA graduated from Villanova, her involvement with the University did not cease—in fact, Wolfe said she feels that her connection to her alma mater deepened even more.
“I have taken Villanova’s goal of ‘life-long learning’ to heart,” Wolfe said. “My learning and growth experience have included so much more than what occurs in a classroom.”
Wolfe has established herself as a leader among University alumni through her steadfast commitment to supporting Villanova’s mission and community. She was elected to the Villanova University Alumni Association (VUAA) Board of Directors and further strengthened her involvement by serving as a co-host for the 2018 VUAA Women’s Leadership Summit and as the VUAA representative of the Mid-Atlantic States recertification effort.
In addition to her involvement with the VUAA, Wolfe is a founding advisory member of the Anne Welsh McNulty Institute for Women’s Leadership, has spoken at several Villanova Women in Tech conferences and served as a contributor to the University’s Ten-Year Strategic Plan.
“I support Villanova because I believe the University and the larger Villanova community exemplifies its motto of Veritas, Unitas, Caritas,” she said. “Our Villanova community strives for continuous improvement, and I am impressed with so many initiatives, especially those from the ICE Center and those centered on diversity, equity and inclusion. The more I participate, the more I learn about the breadth of generosity and philanthropy both at the University and alumni level. I can wear my “V” proudly knowing that my time and financial contributions are being put to good use.”
Wolfe, who has more than 20 years of leadership experience in Information Technology, manufacturing and entrepreneurship, is currently Head of IT at Myoderm Clinical Trials Supplies and CEO of her own business, Sweat EquitE, LLC. She has held senior-level roles at Fortune 500 companies including DuPont, Rohm and Haas, and SAP America as well as advisory roles in local start-ups and emerging businesses. She was named a “Tech Disruptor You Need to Know” by the Philadelphia Business Journal and one of the top 12 technologists of color in Philadelphia by Technical.ly Philly.
