Christine Sherry worked for a decade at the Hewlett Foundation as the founding Executive Director of the Philanthropy Workshop West, a program in partnership with the TOSA and Rockefeller Foundations. She taught a course, Giving Wisely, last fall in the Stanford Continuing Studies program and will teach a similar course starting this September. Since 2008, Christine has led her own philanthropic advising practice, working with a number of Stanford researchers. A distinctive focus of her work is field mapping of various philanthropic landscapes, from climate change to global development. She graduated from Stanford with a dual degree in International Relations and the Humanities Honors program.
