Years ago, WDN recognized the need to undertake bold anti-racist education for its (mostly white) membership and step up grantmaking aimed at participation and representation for all, opportunity and equality for all, and a safe and sustainable future for all. Visionary CEO Donna Hall and her determined team have fostered collaboration, strategic initiatives, and investment in cutting-edge social change. Signature projects include the Reflective Democracy Campaign, a damning demographic picture of who gets elected to public office in the USA. The inequities and disparities sparked outrage. People from traditionally underrepresented demographic groups were moved to step up, run, and win elected office.
