Angela Whitney

Program Fellow

Angela joined the Hewlett Foundation as a Fellow in the Environment Program after working for the National Park Service’s San Francisco Regional Office. While there she worked on issues of land protection and connectivity—helping to ensure that wildlife and other species can move freely across the landscape and have the ability to adapt to changing environmental conditions. Her work also investigated impacts of energy development in the California desert and ocean stewardship strategies.  Angela earned a masters of environmental science degree from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and a bachelor’s degree in politics from Willamette University. While working with the Environment Program, Angela is eager to explore how philanthropy can be used to catalyze a multi-pronged approach to climate change mitigation. She is also looking forward to working with grantees at every level in order to see the variety of ways environmental issues are being engaged.
