Gordon Bell, Monica Bertran, Sashi Brown, Kenneth Downing, Charisse Ford Hughes, Jeanette Nostra-Katz and Emily Olah join the 34 other industry leaders on the nonprofit’s board to help transform lives across the country and abroad.
“We’ve always had a rich exchange of ideas at Delivering Good but this year, as part of our strategic planning process, we sought to really broaden our board in many ways,” said Andrea Weiss, chair of Delivering Good.
“The 2021 class is not only the largest, but the most diverse class of directors that we have ever onboarded at Delivering Good and we’re very proud of that diversity,” Weiss added. “From digital communications, media, fashion and creative, to strategy, financial services, community development and consumer products, our new board members bring an extraordinary set of new skills and networks that are sure to deepen Delivering Good’s impact within our most vulnerable communities.”
