Mrs. Landry is currently helping fund the UNICEF/Harvard Child Protection Master’s Program, which is on track to start in the fall of 2014. The program is intended to address the dearth of formal interdisciplinary graduate-level child protection training; promote the professionalization of the child protection sector; and expand the cadre of qualified national and international child protection policy-makers and field workers. The program’s fellows will be known as the “G. Barrie Landry UNICEF Fellows.”

Mrs. Landry is a trustee of both the G. Barrie Landry Charitable Foundation and the C. Kevin Landry Charitable Foundation.

He was named chief executive officer in 1984 and chairman in 2007. He retired in 2012 due to health concerns.  The Landrys have two daughters who both played ice hockey for Harvard University.
