LEADERSHIP AND GOVERNANCE
Whether working with boards and staff of philanthropic or nonprofit organizations, Janet understands the importance of candid discussions on the unique roles that boards and staff play in the success of programs. "During this time of change and upheaval, the nonprofit arts sector is in need of courageous leadership to pave new directions and serve our communities and constituents in a relevant and meaningful way."
MANAGEMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY
Organizational and programmatic management is at the center of success and good management and capitalization principles lead to sustainability. Janet brings 30 years of experience in leading and helping organizations to successfully meet their missions to serve artists, arts organizations and communities.
RELEVANCY AND RACIAL EQUITY
The nonprofit arts sector provides unique opportunities to present the arts and also to inform through the arts. Supporting artists working in areas of social justice, health, corrections, environment, aging, education and other areas of community life elevates the relevancy of the arts. Janet's work in these areas and racial equity can help both grantmakers and nonprofit organizations achieve goals that are relevant and impactful.
