Barbara Chow Authors Paper on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Philanthropy

“The journey toward greater diversity and inclusion is not linear,” says Barbara Chow in a new paper titled, “From Words to Action: A Practical Philanthropic Guide to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.”

Barbara is the director of the Heising-Simons Foundation’s Education program. Prior to joining the Foundation, she led the Education program at the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and was also a resident fellow at the Bellagio Center, where she focused exclusively on diversity, equity, and inclusion with a broad perspective of the field of philanthropy.

Barbara’s paper, published on The Foundation Center’s GrantCraft, dives into challenges and opportunities to explore how diversity, equity, and inclusion can become more integrated into grantmaking practices and broader foundation ethos.
