The Trusteeship

LEF Adrienne Hall Emerging Leadership Luncheon

The Trusteeship welcomed “home” two former Adrienne Hall Emerging Leadership Award winners, Cynthia Sanchez, Executive Director of Proyecto Pastorale and Lynn Houston, Founder & CEO of A Different Point of View.  Along with these former awardees, Trusteeship member, Wendy Garen, President & CEO of  the Ralph M. Parsons Foundation graciously moderated an informal panel about the changes in philanthropy and the non-profit world. Our own Chris Essel, President & CEO of Southern California Grantmakers helped to round out the panel.

Additionally, the panel engaged in a discussion about how philanthropists, activists and non-profit organizations are partnering to achieve greater impacts in critical areas of need.

We also had a chance to view the new LEF video PSA.  Click here to take a look:

Thank you to hostess Marcia Hobbs for sharing her wonderful private club, the Bel Air Bay Club, Lower Club in Pacific Palisades with all of us.  What a spectacular location!  We all enjoyed the mussels, swordfish, chicken, tomato watermelon, kale and butter lettuce salads…oh, and of course, the awesome Hot Fudge Sundae Bar!

“When I joined The Trusteeship, I had spent my whole life in government service and nonprofit organizations. The Trusteeship has introduced me to previously unfamiliar worlds (corporate, military, film, international) and the wonderful women who populate them, and in the process helped me better appreciate their work and my own.”
