Former Dean Paul Brest comments in Inside Bay Area on lawmakers' efforts to require the state's largest philanthropic foundations to disclose the race, gender and sexual orientation of staff and board members:

"Race, gender and sexual orientation are obviously important identifiers in California and the U.S. and elsewhere, but they are only a part of the important issues that foundations play a role in addressing," said Paul Brest, president of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation in Menlo Park, which awarded nearly $300 million in 2006.
