"We’re paying attention to racial inequalities and disparities in all aspects of our work to ensure we are operating in a way that reflects and values the full diversity of Greater Cleveland. We’re shifting to ‘with’ the community vs. ‘for’ the community,” Hill-Johnson said. “We are just getting started by listening and co-creating.”
Hill-Johnson earned a Master of Public Administration with an emphasis in health services administration from the University of Southern California and also holds a bachelor’s degree in speech communications from Case Western Reserve University. In addition to serving on a number of other boards across Northeast Ohio, she is past co-chair of the African American Philanthropy Committee of the Cleveland Foundation, a 2017 Crain’s Women of Note honoree, a 2020 YWCA Women of Achievement honoree, and was instrumental in The Soul of Philanthropy Cleveland, establishing a permanent exhibit entitled “Celebrate Those Who Give Black.”
