What is the role of CEOs, trustees and senior leadership in instituting a culture of trust -- with each other, with foundation staff and in all of your foundation’s grantmaking practices? And how can a trust-based culture lead to more authentic dialogue, genuine learning and a more effective approach that helps address the inherent power dynamic between foundations and grantees?
