Diversity and Leadership

In the three decades since its founding, the Multicultural Fellowship Program has changed the face of philanthropy and the public service sector. More than 60 leaders have launched from this two-year program that gives them hands-on experience and leadership opportunities. Our program alumni include Fred Blackwell, who is bringing new business and development to Oakland as assistant city administrator; Roger Kim, who has galvanized Asian Americans to advocate for climate change policy as executive director of Asian Pacific Environmental Network; and Diane Aranda, who champions community health as a program manager for The California Endowment. The program serves as a model for cultivating diverse leadership in the region and throughout the nation.

Impact: More than 60 multicultural change-makers leading the way in the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors.
