She is also a member of the Board of Directors of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. In addition, Rafferty was named to the Board of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in 2011 and became Chairman in 2012. She has recently been named Special Adviser to UNESCO for Heritage Protection and Conservation.
A New York City native, Rafferty earned her B.A. degree cum laude from Boston University and recently received its College of Arts & Sciences Distinguished Alumni Award, the highest honor bestowed upon alumni to recognize extraordinary accomplishments in their professions or communities. A recipient of many awards and honors, she received the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters from Pace University in 2014.

Mavenir, focused on transforming mobile network economics for Communications Service Providers, today announced its virtualized Media Breakout Controller (vMBC), a single white box routing platform that enables carriers to host virtual Routing, Firewall, and User plane data offload.
