Girls Inc. of Worcester has named Tiffany Lillie as its new CEO, four months after its longtime CEO was put on leave after allegations of racial discrimination at the girl’s empowerment nonprofit.

Myran Parker-Brass, a consultant from Interim Executive Solutions in Newton, has been in the interim CEO position since May, replacing Victoria Waterman.

Lillie will officially begin her tenure as CEO on Oct. 25, according to a Friday press release from Girls. Inc. Parker-Brass will remain on the team to facilitate the transition.

Lillie is currently assistant superintendent of equity, diversity, and community engagement at Framingham Public Schools. She holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from UMass Boston and a master’s degree in urban studies and affairs from Boston University. Lillie was a program specialist at Girls Inc. of Worcester from 2006 to 2009.

“I am so humbled and grateful for this opportunity. In many ways, this is a full circle moment for me, as Girls Inc. of Worcester was my first ever job many years ago,” said Lillie in the press release. “I look forward to collectively building a vision for Girls Inc. inclusive of our girls, staff, families and community partner voices.”

The selection of Lillie as CEO comes after allegations of racial discrimination resulted in the nonprofit to temporarily suspending its youth programming. Parker-Brass was brought on to enable the nonprofit to resume those operations.
