Doug brings a deep commitment to advancing equity and inclusion to his role at The Giving Practice (TGP), where he serves as a thought partner and facilitator to a wide range of private and independent sector organizations working to integrate equity into their policy, practices and culture.
He joined TGP in 2018 after stepping down from his 16-year role as President and CEO of the Meyer Memorial Trust, a private, Oregon-focused foundation with assets in excess of $1 billion. During that time, he guided the organization in centering equity into its culture, policies, practices, programs and impact investing strategies. With Doug’s leadership on diversity and inclusion, Meyer achieved majority representation of people of color and other historically marginalized populations on the Meyer board of trustees, the executive team and the staff.
Prior to the Meyer Trust, Doug was a senior executive at NIKE, Inc., as well as a trial attorney in private practice.
Doug earned his law degree from Lewis and Clark Law School and a bachelor's degree from Stanford University. He has also completed Reframing Racism and Racial Equity Facilitator Intensive training at the Center for Equity & Inclusion.
When the opportunity presents, he and his wife, Jackie, are fond of hiking in Portland's Forest Park, Central Oregon or wherever their travels take them.
