Allen joins Council on Foundations' new Pathways program

Skillman Foundation Vice President of Program Tonya Allen has been selected as one of fifteen philanthropic leaders for the inaugural Council on Foundations' 2010-2011 Career Pathways program.

The one-year program seeks to recruit and foster excellence and diverse talent in philanthropy's most senior levels.

"The impact and effectiveness of philanthropy are strengthened by diversity and inclusive practices that support leadership preparation," said Steve Gunderson, president and CEO of the Council on Foundations. "We expect that Pathways will become one of the most effective efforts to prepare, recruit, and retain talented leaders who will help drive the sector's efforts to improve lives and communities."
