Foundation executives play a crucial role in leading institutional efforts to advance diversity, equity, and social justice through grantmaking, internal practices, and public advocacy. CEOs working to advance diversity and justice also face unique challenges, ranging from managing risk-averse boards and living donors to shifting institutional cultures that are often resistant to change. This special track of sessions is designed exclusively for foundation CEOs seeking to develop advanced tools and strategies for the challenging long-term work of integrating the values of diversity and social justice in all aspects of their institutions.
The CEO Track will be interactive and provide an opportunity for executives to learn from the challenges, experiences, and experiments of their peers. These sessions are only open to CEOs, presidents, or executive directors of grantmaking institutions.
