Dee Dee Brantley
Chief Operating Officer
Why do you do what you do? What drew you to the foundation?
I do this because I believe in the foundation’s mission. I know that the foundation’s work can and does influence positive change in the Bay Area, particularly as it relates to racial and economic equity. I also appreciate that the commitment and the work done in the region is reflected internally through our dedicated and impactful staff.
How would you describe your role?
I provide oversight to several core operational aspects of the organization such as human resources, office administration, information technology and grants administration. Each of these functions contribute in unique and different ways toward our equity agenda, including ensuring that we have the environment and talent needed to execute this agenda, as well as the necessary infrastructure to allow us to measure our impact.
Are you involved in any volunteer activities?
Yes, I engage in volunteer work.
