Ahmi Dhuna

Tom Ford Philanthropy Fellow, Strategy & External Relations

Ahmi Dhuna is joining EBCF as a Fellow on the Executive Team. Ahmi cares deeply about social and environmental justice and has developed a depth and breadth of understanding of the field, with academic and professional experiences spanning the social sector. In her role, she will be mentored by Sachi Yoshii.

Ahmi’s first professional experience in thoughtful, high-impact philanthropy was with the Flamboyan Foundation in Washington, D.C. She specialized in knowledge management and worked with the managing director to standardize the foundation’s data evaluation techniques. After her time at Flamboyan, she felt drawn towards understanding the systems that allowed inequity to persist. Ahmi sought out diverse experiences to develop a clearer vision of the cross-sectoral and interdisciplinary levers necessary to achieve sustainable, systems change. Ahmi has reported on Congressional hearings with the Partnership for Public Service, served constituents facing immigration challenges with Congressman Ro Khanna, supported union workers at Unite Here Local 2, and applied human-centered design to the California eviction court system with the Stanford Legal Design Lab.

Ahmi graduated with a Master of Science degree in Sustainability Science Practice in June 2020 and completed her Bachelor’s in Political Science and Human Rights in 2019, both at Stanford University. She was born and raised in Burlington, Iowa and loves to experiment with new recipes, grow vegetables, and play with her favorite golden retriever pup, Moose.
