September 2012 REPG Webinar

During this session, we discussed the W. K. Kellogg Foundation’s evolution and approaches to policies and practices with regard to race and equity. Presenters from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation included:

* Dr. Gail Christopher, Vice President of Program Strategy
* Luz Benitez-Delgado, Deputy Director
* Kathy Reincke, Communications Officer
* Joel Wittenberg, Vice President & Chief Investment Officer

The REPG is a peer-learning and mutually reinforcing network identifying and informing foundation policies and practices on matters of race and equity. Together and as individual organizations they are committed to improving their ability to effectively promote race and equity in their policies, operations and practices. Some of the REPG’s pressing goals are to identify and inform foundation policies and procedures on matters of race and equity, increase dialogue across organizations, research and document efforts to guide the field, and produce tools and resources that enable replication. Current members include The San Francisco Foundation, The California Endowment, California Community Foundation, The Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Woods Fund of Chicago, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation, and is facilitated by Marga Inc.
