Angelique Power

President
The Skillman Foundation

Born and raised on the southside of Chicago by a white, Jewish mother who was a Chicago Public School teacher and an African American father who rose to be Sergeant in the Chicago Police force, Angelique has a passion for catalyzing new ways of thinking about racial equity and social justice. Prior to Skillman, Angelique served as president of the Field Foundation where she doubled its grantmaking and staff size through strategic partnerships, added a socially responsible and racially equitable focus to the endowment, and re-thought its impact measurement. She began her career in philanthropy with the Dayton Hudson Corporation and lead community relations giving at Target Corporation. She was director of community engagement and communications at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, and program director at the Joyce Foundation.
