Welcoming Our New Foundation Relations and Strategy Lead

We’re delighted to announce that on March 16, Kristen Yawitz joined the HRDAG team in the role of Foundation Relations and Strategy Lead. She started working with both executive director Megan Price and director of research Patrick Ball in various capacities 10 years ago.

At HRDAG, Kristen will focus on planning and budgeting fundraising efforts, while also tracking, writing, and editing grants and developing and stewarding relationships with institutional funders. In addition, she’ll play a key role in planning and strategizing the HRDAG narrative.

“We’re so pleased to have Kristen represent HRDAG in the community,” says Megan. “I know she’ll help us tell our story in a way that resonates with our supporters.”

Kristen is excited to begin! “HRDAG has such integrity and impact. It’s a great feeling, when I can help to secure support for the work that HRDAG is leading. The team combines serious brainpower with a spirit of solidarity,” she says. “What’s not to love?”

Our work has been used by truth commissions, international criminal tribunals, and non-governmental human rights organizations. We have worked with partners on projects on five continents.
