In this episode of The Intentional Fundraiser Podcast, I'm talking with Rachel Hutchisson, Rachel is a champion for social good.
Rachel is a social impact leader with expertise in strategic communications, philanthropy and ESG (environmental, social and governance).
Until very recently, she served as VP of Global Social Responsibility at Blackbaud, leading the company’s social impact investments and sustainability and helping the company’s 3,300 associates be Agents of Good. A position she recently left.
She’s committed to the core philosophy that “good is for everyone,” being a champion for positive change, and inspiring individuals to integrate service into their personal and professional development.
Rachel brings experience in marketing, brand communications, corporate culture and strategic relationships to her role. She built Blackbaud’s CSR program from the ground up, leveraging her deep experience working at the intersection of business and nonprofits.
She served as the Chair of the Blackbaud’s Senior Women’s Leadership Council, as well as a member of the ESG Steering Committee and the Diversity and Inclusion Council.
She is a Riley Fellow, having attended Furman’s Diversity Leadership Institute, and has participated in both phases of the Racial Equity Institute training, hosted by the YWCA.
She is Past Board Chair of The Giving Institute and serves on the board of Common Impact.
She previously served on the boards of AFP International, the Coastal Community Foundation, the Blackbaud Giving Fund and Learning to Give.
Her Tedx talk “The Era of Corporate Social Responsibility is Ending” is available on the TEDx YouTube channel. We’ll include links in the show notes.
