Vice President’s Message: Listening Out Loud – A Focus on Equity

Listening to nonprofits, grantees, and communities has always been a core value at the Weingart Foundation. Listening is especially important to us in this time following the August 2016 announcement of our full and long-term commitment to advancing social and economic equity. With this announcement, we also launched a year of intensive listening and learning in order to learn how people are responding to our initial plan and hear what suggestions they might have to strengthen our strategies around equity moving forward.
