Larry Kramer, Pres. & CEO of William & Flora Hewlett Foundation

“The skills that are essential for most careers today, foundationally require knowing how to think.”

Former Richard E. Lang Professor of Law and  Dean at Stanford Law School, Kramer is currently  the President & CEO of the William and Flora  Hewlett Foundation. At Stanford, Kramer was an entrepreneurial leader, pushing changes at the  law school that included new joint degree  programs and a bigger focus on public service as  well as hands-on legal training. This approach is a  natural fit for the Hewlett Foundation,  celebrating its 50th anniversary. This leader in  philanthropy is known for taking on issues of  significance, including democracy, global  development, the environment, education, and the performing arts.
