Debra McLeod, Master of Divinity

Class of 

Since graduating from YDS I have been working with foundations and programs that empower women and girls. Much of that work has been direct funding of schools with some focus on documentary films that explore and further women and girls' civil rights. I am in the early stages of looking for an executive assistant who will support me personally as well as with the foundation. The job is heavily dependent on technological mastery. You can go to our Grant Me The Wisdom Foundation website ( which is in great need of revamping to get an idea of our work. We also invest heavily in documentary films in general. Maybe you have seen The Hunting Ground (, The Cove (, Icarus which is up for an Academy Award (, Eagle Huntress (, Audrie & Daisy ( . We are a small family foundation located in Houston, Texas in our family office that also runs a commercial real estate company. You can email me at
