Ingrid Srinath appointed as new board chair

The Resource Alliance has appointed Mumbai-based activist and campaigner
Ingrid Srinath as its new chair of the board with immediate effect. Ingrid succeeds
outgoing chair Bill Toliver, whose six-year tenure has come to an end.

“I am delighted that Ingrid Srinath has accepted the nomination to transition to lead our
board,” said Willeke van Rijn, CEO of the Resource Alliance. “Ingrid has been a passionate
advocate of human rights, social justice, and civil society for over 25 years, a strong
promoter of trust-based philanthropy in India and across the world throughout her career,
and has been an integral part of our board since early 2020.”

Continuing, she said, “I would also like to extend my sincerest thanks to Bill Toliver
for his steadfast leadership and personal support of our team through the pandemic and
beyond. Bill served on our board for almost 10 years, including six as chair and a stint as
interim CEO. He was a driving force behind the Resource Alliance’s manifesto, our strategic
direction, and in securing the long-term future of the organisation.”
