The RBF Diversity Project Report

In early 2008, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund launched a foundation-wide project to assess and improve diversity within its operations and grantmaking. A Diversity Working Group consisting of staff members from across the Fund was created to explore diversity and inclusion at the RBF, with an initial goal of determining whether the Fund might embark on specific initiatives or strategies to strengthen its commitment.

Through engagement in the Diversity Project’s discussions and workshops, RBF staff and trustees have learned that ongoing evaluation of diversity and inclusion is crucial to fulfilling the RBF’s mission.
