Women’s Fund of Central Indiana has named Tamara Winfrey-Harris president, succeeding founding president Jennifer Pope Baker, who led the organization for 23 years. Winfrey-Harris currently serves as vice president of people, culture and brand for Central Indiana Community Foundation.
Winfrey-Harris steps into her new role on January 9.
“I am honored to have this opportunity to use my abilities to make this community a better place for women and girls,” said Winfrey-Harris. “I promise to listen, to learn and be guided by the needs, experiences and voices of women and girls in all their intersections and complexities.”
The organization says Winfrey-Harris oversaw the execution of the more than $2.2 million Central Indiana Racial Equity Fund (CIREF), established by the Eli Lilly and Company Foundation, Lumina Foundation, CICF and other donors to focus on solutions that address racial inequities in the criminal justice system.
