Coastal Community Foundation, in partnership with Blackbaud®, is debuting the annual Equity Speaker Series, featuring nationally recognized thought leaders on diversity, equity and inclusion. The speaker for the inaugural event is Barbara Whye, a University of South Carolina alumna and Vice President of Inclusion and Diversity for Apple. We’re thrilled to welcome Barbara Whye, a native South Carolinian who leads Apple’s commitment to a more equitable and inclusive world. Her roles and experiences as an engineer, a C-suite executive and a leader will inspire and encourage.
