Voices of Impact: How the Rockefeller Brothers Fund Approached Their DEI Journey
An interview with Mark Adiedo, vice president for people and culture and chief diversity officer at the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, on creating an anti-racist and anti-sexist organization.
Mark, can you start off by telling us a little bit about the Rockefeller Brothers Fund?
Mark Adiedo (MA):
...Since 2020, we have deepened our DEI initiatives to expressly commit to become an anti-racist and anti-sexist institution. This is central to our mission and achieving the impact we seek.
The RBF’s diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts have evolved from “reactive” to “proactive,” with two hallmarks – aiming for a more profound sense of belonging among staff, trustees, grantees, and people we partner with and maximizing impact through the work that enables us to achieve our mission.
