Episode Info: “Once you experience meaningful work, you can’t go back.” Clayton De Fur, the Sr. Community Leadership Officer at the Central Indiana Community Foundation, joins us this week to share his story and discuss the CICF’s strategy and impact. Following the advice of his career test, Clayton graduated from IU Bloomington with a master's degree in public affairs with a focus on non-profit management. Fortunately, he’s never turned back. In what he feels like is one of his dream roles, Clayton handles grant-making and non-profit relationships focused in areas including arts and culture, environment, animal welfare, food access, nutrition, and health. In this episode, we dive deep into the issue that CICF has chosen to tackle: Systemic Racism. Clayton candidly reveals how we can only fix access to opportunity if we focus on race. Once the CICF recognized this problem, they decided to change their mission to “mobilize” a “community where all individuals have equitable opportunity…” and have initiated change in Indiana. Including partnering with the Drink Culture Podcast to present the Seeing White series that helps attendees understand whiteness.
