Heather Parish named Field Catalyst

The Center for Community Investment (CCI) at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy is proud to announce the selection of the inaugural cohort of its Field Catalyst program. Among those chosen is Pierce Family Foundation Co-Executive Director Heather Parish.

These 13 leaders from across the United States are established practitioners in community investment and development, racial justice, and adaptive leadership. Over the next year, they’ll partner with CCI and work together to explore how they can help transform the practice of community investment in the U.S. to leverage existing local resources and drive systemic change anchored in racial justice.
