    Guest Diane is a first-generation American, the daughter of working-class, Polish immigrants who instilled in her a strong work ethic and desire to “do good.” After studying international relations in college, Diane stayed in Washington and began her nonprofit career on the national staff of United Way, the largest charity in the United States.
     
    Over the course of seventeen years, she managed United Way’s national  literacy program, managed the national board of trustees, and built a women’s giving program that has to date raised over $2 billion and mobilized over 70,000 philanthropists.
     
    After leaving United Way, she went on to lead US fundraising  operations for an international nongovernmental organization that served  orphans and abandoned children, oversaw a leadership turnover at a large public library foundation, served as the Chief of Protocol at the US Embassy in Australia, and led the women’s giving program for the  American Red Cross.
     
    In 2018, she and her husband cofounded Evergreen Philanthropic Solutions, a national consultancy that helps nonprofit organizations, individuals, corporations, and foundations achieve their philanthropic goals. Diane is a published author of For a Good Cause: A Practical Guide to Giving Joyfully and a frequent speaker at conferences.

Tranquility du jour tous les jours

I've been in love with this podcast and Kimberly Wilson ever since I discovered them both. I have a minimum one-hour commute to and from school/work four to five days each week and was searching for a podcast to listen to to pass the time, and this is the first that drew me in. Kimberly covers wonderful topics in her interviews with wonderful people, and I feel like you really come to know about her and the things she's passionate about, and why, like animal welfare, yoga, and tranquility in everyday life, which I think we could all use a lot more of. Thank you, Kimberly, for shining your light in this world. Already looking forward to the next episode. 💕

2022 UPDATE: It’s been about five years since I discovered TDJ and while, in the spirit of honesty, I have not been a diligent follower all that time, I’ve recently returned to Kimberly Wilson’s world and discovered how much I missed being a part of it. This is the only podcast I ever listen to and it will forever be my favorite. It offers wonderful resources on a range of topics including mindfulness, creativity, creating space for yourself and for what’s important to you, and just like she says at the beginning of each episode, living a full and meaningful life. I’ve learned that listening to Tranquility du Jour and subscribing to her Love Notes newsletter absolutely makes my life fuller and more meaningful. Love.
