LOUISVILLE, Ky. — To ensure that its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is embedded across the entire organization, the Community Foundation of Louisville has announced the promotion of Ramona Dallum Lindsey to the newly created position of Vice President of Equity and Impact.
In her role, Lindsey will lead the implementation of the Foundation’s DEI and anti-racism strategy; advise on grantmaking and scholarship practices that support racial equity, alleviate barriers to resources and integrate trust-based philanthropy principles; and oversee the equitable evaluation of organizational impact.
Lindsey joined the Community Foundation’s Mission & Impact team in July 2017. Earlier this year, she led the team that designed the application and selection process for its first-ever Fund for Louisville Racial Justice Cohort.
This initiative brought together Black community members and their allies to advise the Foundation on creating a grant process intentionally focused on supporting Black-led social change. Lindsey has also led grantmaking efforts to address disparities in the community’s health across racial and socioeconomic lines through the Louisville Health Equity Fund, a partnership among the Community Foundation of Louisville and other organizations, and directed programming for Hadley Creatives, an immersive professional development program for a diverse group of artists.
