John Kander

Co-Executive Director

Throughout my media career, including as chief creative executive for the #1
Broadcast Network’s on-air marketing division, as a senior television and film
production executive, and as a writer and producer of entertainment, advocacy,
and informational programming, my collaborative work has often had the good
fortune to influence the national conversation while earning the industry’s most
prestigious creative and humanitarian awards.

I’ve also been both lucky and driven to share my time and support with several vital
common good organizations, including nearly two decades as Chairman of Claremont
McKenna College’s Gould Center for the Humanities whose scholarly and cultural
contributions to CMC’s future leaders have earned national recognition,
including the Pulitzer Prize, five years as a Board + member of People For The
American Way identifying and nurturing future progressive leaders, and more than a
decade as a board member, team leader and senior volunteer for Care Harbor, the
nation’s largest free medical, dental, vision and mental health clinic.
