President's Message February/March 2023

A New Year and Renewed Focus: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

However, while the LBF has always supported diverse organizations and citizens, and strives to ensure its leadership reflects the diversity of Louisiana, it has become clear that we always need to be intentional in our processes and actions to ensure we remain true to our Mission and goals. We need to apply a DEI lens to the Foundation's work, including the infrastructure, leadership, membership and grants making.
