Director of Transparency Initiatives, Candid
Janet Camarena works to champion greater foundation transparency and build a movement for greater openness in the field of philanthropy. A key part of her role is to provide leadership for GlassPockets.org, having led an inter-departmental team to create it in 2010. GlassPockets provides a variety of tools and features designed to encourage philanthropic openness, such as the #OpenForGood knowledge-sharing field guide and campaign. GlassPockets has been recognized by the Webby Awards, and was also selected as one of the Top 100 websites by PC Magazine. Janet also oversees and authors articles on the GlassPockets’ Transparency Talk blog.
