Senior Director, Power
Why do you do what you do? What drew you to the foundation?
I believe deeply in our racial and economic equity agenda and the power of philanthropy to support grassroots leaders of color who are leading movements for social change. When I think of my family’s journey — my parents are emigrants from China and my dad entered this country through Angel Island — and the privilege that I am afforded, my work at the foundation is one way to give back to the community and to give my life meaning.
How would you describe your role?
I see my role as stewarding resources and brokering relationships that advance the goals of movement leaders, their organizations and the communities they serve.
