Nominator Comments:

Keisa is recognized for her remarkable leadership in bringing an equity lens and focus to community investment, granting, and evaluation processes. Her commitment to collaboration and passion for anti­ racism work led to the development of our Community Investment Equity and Reconciliation Action Plan and the formation of the Equity and Reconciliation Working Group. Keisa is a champion for equity, a model for authenticity and integrity, a trusted partner with all stakeholders,  a  mentor to colleagues, and an inspiration in many ways.  Keisa demonstrates a strong desire to learn and grow. She dove deep into a comprehensive Community Investment Equity Audit, engaged in a literature review of best funder practices internationally, and contributed to a cross-organizational team that secured funds focused on advancing equity in our community investments. Keisa presents hard, truth-telling data on long-standing inequities and systemic racism embedded within non-profit funding, and her notable achievements will lay the foundation for how we move forward.
