Black Grant Directors’ Roundtable: Lessons from a career in philanthropy

2 de abril de 2020


Five grants management leaders offer on-the-ground testimony to the challenges of Black professionals in the sector – from the complexities of practicing DEI to the ways race has affected perceptions of their leadership, to the realities of code-switching your way through the white-dominant workplace.

We offer our gratitude for the generosity and candor of Nicole Howe Buggs, Chief Administrative Officer and Corporate Secretary at the Carnegie Corporation of New York; Ify Mora, Director, Program Operations at Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies, and PEAK Grantmaking board member; Miyesha Perry, Director of Grants Management at the Kenneth Rainin Foundation; and Timothy Robinson, AVP – Operations and Grants Administration at the Lumina Foundation, and PEAK Grantmaking board member; and Susan Hairston, Susan Hairston Consulting.
