This invitation-only CEO reception was generously hosted by Capital Group. We were joined by special guest Darren Walker, President of the Ford Foundation, the second largest philanthropic organization in the United States. 

For more than two decades Darren has been a leader in the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors, starting with a local community and economic development initiative in Harlem, then shifting to global work on an array of social justice issues, including human rights, urban development, free expression, and more.  Before being named President in 2013, Darren served as the Ford Foundation’s Vice President for Education, Creativity and Free Expression, where he shaped more than $140 million in annual grantmaking around the world. He also oversaw the Foundation’s regional programming in four offices based in Africa and the Middle East.

Prior to joining the Ford Foundation in 2010, Darren was Vice President for Foundation Initiatives at the Rockefeller Foundation, where he led both domestic and global programs. He serves on the boards of the Arcus Foundation and Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, among others, and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
