The 2015 James Irvine Foundation Leadership Award recipients were recently announced at a luncheon held in Sacramento. This year's class of leaders offered innovative solutions to some of California's most critical challenges. Below are some highlights from the conversation happening over Twitter.
We thrive on change in California. Our shifting demographics and technology innovations point the way for the rest of the country, and we’re aware how these changes can profoundly affect who we are as a people and how we live together.
2014 was a year of opportunity and transition for the Foundation — from welcoming our new President and CEO Don Howard, to selecting five initial projects for the California Pay for Success Initiative.
In my October letter, I mentioned that all of us at Irvine are committed to capitalizing on our recent leadership transition to reflect and to innovate, both in the way we operate and in the work we do, to increase our impact. Now, as we look toward 2015, I want to provide you with an update on some actions we are taking in pursuit of these commitments.
