Ms Catherine Burnett had the great fortune to meet Jennifer in 2018, and Jennifer’s vision, energy and innovation led her to engage with Sweef’s work to drive positive impact for women in Southeast Asia. Catherine is excited about the opportunity to help amplify the Sweef’s team impact leadership and diversity focus each day. 

Catherine has devoted more than 15 years to guiding foundations, family offices, nonprofits and corporations to build a more equitable and thriving future via intentional impact strategies. Previously focused primarily on the USA and East Africa, Catherine has been a deeply committed impact investing innovator and systems change catalyst for gender and racial equity. She led Phillips Foundation to become one of the first foundations to implement a 100% impact investing strategy for its endowment.
