Carmela Zakon

Multicultural Fellow, Strategic Learning and Evaluation
Why do you do what you do?

I am a Bay Area native who grew up in Richmond and Berkeley. I have experienced the inequity embedded in local institutions first-hand and I have dedicated my career to finding solutions that are evidence-based.

What drew you to the foundation?

I was inspired by the foundation’s leadership on racial and economic justice and vision of the Bay Area as a place where everyone can thrive, regardless of their background.

How would you describe your role?

I help develop and manage tools for tracking data to better understand the foundation’s impact and be responsive to our community partners.
