The Council on Foundations has announced the 24 participants selected for the 2020 Career Pathways cohort, a leadership development programme designed to increase the number of diverse candidates in the philanthropic leadership pipeline.
The newly selected participants represent the seventh cohort of the program, which targets mid to senior-career philanthropic professionals. Launched in 2010, the Career Pathways programme will support the cohort to delve deep into major issues facing philanthropic leaders; gain access to a vast network of CEOs, trustees, search firm executives and national thought leaders; attend virtual and in-person career trainings, and be paired with an executive coach to advise and support them along their career path.
‘We continue to be inspired by the number of amazing and highly qualified applicants we received for Career Pathways, and the 2020 cohort is truly exceptional,’ said Karon Moody Harden, the Council’s Vice President, Programs & Peer Engagement. ‘As we work to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in philanthropy through the Career Pathways program, we are excited to engage with this year’s cohort and see the work they will do in applying their new knowledge to improve their communities.’
The 2020 Career Pathways cohort will convene four times across the country and will be hosted by several leading philanthropic institutions. The first convening will take place in January in San Antonio, Texas. The programme will conclude in October 2020 in Los Angeles, California.
