Julie Fry Moving From Hewlett to Cal Humanities

John McGuirk, program director at The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, has announced that Julie Fry will step down from her position of program officer on January 23. She will join Cal Humanities, the statewide humanities council, as President and CEO in early February. Hewlett has begun the search for a new program officer and the job description is available on the Foundation’s website.

“Julie has skillfully managed a very large portfolio of more than 125 arts organizations, including a cluster of grantees focused on arts education policy and advocacy at the federal, state, county, and local levels,” McGuirk said. “Her work has enabled California’s K-12 public school students to have more equitable access to multi-disciplinary arts education opportunities.”
