Women & Philanthropy Selects 2000 LEAD Award Winner
Women & Philanthropy announced Monday their selection of Katherine Acey for their Leadership for Equity and Diversity award. The LEAD award, developed five years ago, honors those who promote equality for women and girls.
Acey serves as the executive director for the Astraea National Lesbian Action Foundation and was selected for "her leadership and vision in bringing visibility, hope and new resources to women who face discrimination, stigma and even hatred based solely on whom they are."
Idelisse Malave, Executive Director of the Tides Foundation, will present the award to Acey in Los Angeles on Sunday, April 30.
Women & Philanthropy is a Washington, DC-based organization of grant makers that works with individual and institutional funders, regional associations of grant makers and affinity groups to address the critical needs and talents of women.
