In Conversation with La June Montgomery Tabron: watch the film

June 1, 2021

Watch La June Montgomery Tabron in conversation with Professor Jonathan Michie, discussing opportunities for leadership in every circle — and how global leaders in corporations, education, civic institutions and faith-based organisations are pursuing racial healing as a path for creating the equitable systems our children, families and communities need.

La June Montgomery Tabron is President and CEO of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) based in Battle Creek, Michigan, and is a Bynum Tudor Fellow at Kellogg College.

In 2014, Tabron became the first woman and African American to lead the Foundation in its 90-year history, having served in a variety of positions since she joined the Kellogg Foundation in 1987. Tabron leads the Kellogg Foundation in its work to support thriving children, working families and equitable communities, embedding a commitment to engaging communities, developing leaders and racial equity into every undertaking.

Kellogg – the University of Oxford’s most international and diverse graduate College – was founded in 1990 to support students studying part-time for graduate degrees, something that the University had not previously permitted. Consistent with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s longstanding focus on ‘helping people to help themselves,’ the endowment of Kellogg College reflected the joint commitment of the Foundation and College to give a second chance to those who may have missed out on university education first time round.
