Join the Center for Effective Philanthropy and a panel of guests on September 29 for a discussion about board governance and equity.
Foundation leaders often cite their boards as an impediment to the shifts in practices they see as necessary in these times, CEP research has shown. How can foundation CEOs and boards evolve so that boards are both more diverse and more focused on the practices and approaches that are needed in this moment? How can CEOs help boards understand and engage with questions of structural inequity, and how that inequity affects the foundation’s work? What lessons can be learned from foundation boards that have engaged these questions and shifted their approaches?
Join CEP on September 29, 2-3:15 PM ET, for a vital conversation for foundation leadership about equity and board governance. Moderated by Kevin Bolduc, vice president, Assessment and Advisory Services, CEP, the panel will include:

  • Alesha Washington, President & CEO, Seattle Foundation
  • Dr. Ed Taylor, Board Chair, Seattle Foundation
  • Mari Kuraishi, CEO, Jessie Ball duPont Fund
  • Charles “Chuck” Redmond, Trustee, Jessie Ball duPont Fund
