Barbara Raymond


Deeply committed to working with mission-driven organizations that contribute to meaningful social impact, I have 20+ years of experience delivering strategic guidance to foundations, NGOs, corporations, governing bodies, nonprofits, and public agencies.  I've played leading roles in ​reforming public safety policy, advising military branches on ways to improve educational benefits for members and families, and identifying potential climate flashpoints around the globe. 

My expertise is built on deep domain knowledge combined with extensive experience in strategic communications.  Equity and inclusion are guiding principles.  One of my proudest achievements came as Program Director at The California Endowment (one of the twenty largest private foundations in the U.S.) where I created Sons & Brothers, a community of youth of color.  This became the largest foundation-backed social media channel at the time, with 720,000 active members.  I hold a B.A. in Government from Pomona College and an M.A. in Education & Policy (with high honors) from Seattle University.
